The Eurinfra project was launched in 2000 with the objective of improving knowledge of European law within the Dutch Judiciary. The main objectives were to improve accessibility of the sources of information related to European law through web technology; improving knowledge of European law among Dutch judges, and supporting, establishing and maintaining a network of court coordinators specialising in European law (Gerechtscoördinatoren Europees Recht). For an overview of activities designed to promote a European focus within the Judiciary, please see our English brochure about the Eurinfra project (pdf, 301.2 KB).
The initial objectives of the Eurinfra project, in which CBB, Bistro (currently known as Spir-it), SSR and the Council all collaborated, have since been achieved, but the project is still running, having been integrated into the Judiciary’s quality policy In order to promote professionalism and expertise, it is important to maintain a continuing focus on European and international law. The Council once again highlighted the importance of this in the Agenda of the Judiciary 2011-2014.
