Inter-institutional archives group

The inter-institutional working group on archives was created in 2004 and meets twice a year. The chair and secretariat rotate between the European Parliament, the Council and the Commission.

The group's mission is:

  • to discuss the management of the EU's current, intermediate and historic archives
  • to improve cooperation on archives
  • to harmonise the treatment of archives wherever possible.


The group also coordinates the deposit of the EU's historical archives at the European University Institute in Florence, which is also represented in the group.
