The Corporate Communications Office is Eurojust's principal external communication point for establishing contact with and receiving enquiries from the media, interested citizens and relations with communication actors of other EU Agencies.
The Office provides support to both the College and the Administration of Eurojust. It drafts and publishes press releases, and news items in cooperation with the National Desks and administrative units, on behalf of Eurojust. It also organises press interviews with College members by national and international media on particular cases and Eurojust in general, as well as media briefings.
The Head of Corporate Communications Office regularly attends Eurojust seminars, organising media meetings, and is dealing with the media. As a member of Nieuwspoort, BPV (Foreign Press Association of the Netherlands), the Head of Corporate Communications Office attends meetings with the international press.
The Corporate Communications Office maintains an extensive database of photographs, taken during in-house meetings/visits as well as external events, and ,may provide video footage of Eurojust when requested by TV stations. Much of the graphic design, photo editing and publications layout work is done within the Service.
The Corporate Communications Office liaises with different EU-actors and communicators in Justice and Home Affairs. Additionally, group visits are often hosted at Eurojust, many of which are given a presentation on Eurojust’s role and tasks by the Press & PR Service, sometimes in cooperation with the External Relations Team.
