Established in September 2020, after the fires in the Moria reception centre on the Greek island of Lesvos, the Task Force Migration Management works with the Greek authorities and EU agencies to improve conditions for migrants arriving to Greece. The Task Force was established based on an agreement between Greece and the European Commission. It is also supported by a group of Member States.
The newly built Multi-Purpose Reception and Identification centre on Samos - Zervou officially opened its doors on 18 September 2021.
