Events/Conferences

The German EMN Contact Point organises a national network meeting on an annual basis. This national EMN conference is attended by specialists from all the relevant specialist fields in order to exchange information on current topics.
As a matter of principle, these national conferences serve the purpose of further developing the national network, and are to lead to the national network partners becoming more closely involved in the activities of the EMN. The Commission or other National Contact Points can also attend the meetings.
