Eurojust is successfully supporting the Member States in the fight against serious cross-border crime. The experience gained over its 12 years of existence has been of significant added value to national authorities when dealing with transnational mutual legal assistance requests, the application of mutual recognition instruments and the coordination of criminal cases. Eurojust is now entering a crucial phase of development: the adoption of a Regulation on Eurojust and the establishment of a European Public Prosecutor’s Office are expected to take place. Eurojust’s Multi-Annual Strategy... 2016-2018 sets out the direction Eurojust will take in light of these challenges, and reconciles the need to continue to strengthen its operational capacities while adapting to a changing environment. Eurojust’s Multi-Annual Strategy covers the period 2016-2018 and is intended to be a flexible and future-oriented tool supporting the development of Eurojust. The Multi-Annual Strategy 2016-2018 identifies three strategic goals related to operational work, strategic work and organisational development. The strategic goals will be achieved over three years and will be detailed in the respective Annual Work Programmes. Key Performance Indicators included in the Annual Work Programmes will allow monitoring and reporting on achievements. The Multi-Annual Strategy also supports other key elements in the planning process, such as the Multi-Annual Staff Policy Plan, the Establishment Plans and the Budgets for 2016, 2017 and 2018. The Eurojust Annual Report and the Annual Activity Report of the Administrative Director will provide an overview of the results.
