The Impact on the EU and National Budgets of EU Agencies - Case Studies

16-07-2012

The study looked into the impact - on both EU and national budgets - of transferring responsibilities/tasks from the national to the European level following the creation of EU agencies and also examined possible synergies and duplications between them. The study focused on two growing EU agencies - the European Aviation Safety Agency and the European Medicines Agency - which cooperate with the national agencies in different ways. The study covers all 27 Member States and provides an analysis of available financial figures and qualitative assessments in order to evaluate the impact at national and EU level.
