The EU agencies – working for you
The work of the EU agencies directly impacts the lives of more than 500 million EU citizens. The EU agencies were set up to provide valuable services to industries and citizens and carry out specific legal, technical or scientific tasks. The agencies work on a wide range of areas - from the medicines we take or the food we eat, to the chemicals in our products or our working conditions.
Besides other functions, EU agencies support innovation, growth and jobs in order to make Europe more competitive in a global market place and promote a fair and equal society for everyone in the EU.
