Representing the Region of Western Greece to the European Union, the Brussels Liaison Office was established in September 2004. Its purpose is to support the Region in its efforts to make Western Greece a dynamic and thriving actor in the European Scene. Its main functions include tasks that are best carried out in direct contact with Brussels, namely:
Representing and Promoting the Region in Europe
The office represents the Region in meetings, seminars and conferences and strives to disseminate best practice and experiences from the Region as well as promote Western Greek expertise.
Monitoring Developments and Disseminating Information about the European Union
It monitors the changes and developments in European Union Policy with a view to providing “early warning” to the interested Regional actors. It follows EU programmes and funding and provides a constant flow of information with regards to tender opportunities, calls for proposals & partner searches that might be of interest to the Region.
The office strives to develop and maintain close relations with all European Institutions, as well as other Regional representations in Brussels. It is currently working on joining networks and associations that would help promote Regional interests.
Support Services to Visitors
The office provides general administrative support to and acts as a contact point for all Regional actors visiting Brussels.
The Head of Brussels Liaison Office is Ms. Kafeza Christiana. The Office also cooperates with Mr. Misirloglou Giannis- External Consultant on EU Affairs
