At the beginning of July 2023, the Europol Management Board adopted the agency’s updated corporate strategy. The renewed strategy, “Delivering Security in Partnership”, sets out six strategic priorities for Europol’s mandate in the upcoming years, including highlights and examples:

  • Be the EU criminal information hub, including for data acquisition;
  • Deliver flexible, real-time operational support;
  • Be a platform for European policing solutions;
  • Bring the relevant partners together for cross-border cooperation and joint action;
  • Be at the forefront of law enforcement innovation and research;
  • Be the model EU organisation for law enforcement cooperation.

Under the renewed strategy, special priority is given to bolstering Europol’s role in bringing together relevant partners for operational cooperation. To this end, Europol will especially invest in its partnerships with the Schengen-associated countries, Interpol, and key JHA agencies such as Frontex. Likewise, private parties, including companies, universities, NGOs and research institutes will be important partners. Interpol will continue to be an important bridge to countries around the world with which Europol does not have cooperation agreements.
