Q: What is the relationship between EAGs and programme committees?
A: EAGs and programme committees are quite distinct. The purpose of the EAGs is to advise the Commission, whereas programme committees have a formal role set out in the Council decisions adopting the specific programmes. Programme committees are required to be consulted by the Commission before taking certain decisions. Evidently, the work of the EAGs is of interest to the programme committees and they are informed of the EAGs' deliberations through, for example, inviting the chairmen of the EAGs to make presentations at programme committee meetings.
