Judicial expertise and its place in our modern society are at the centre of the concerns and reflections of the European Expertise and Expert Institute (EEEI). Set up in October 2006, the European Expertise and Expert Institute has set itself the objectives of improving the quality of judicial expert evidence and harmonizing its practice in Europe in order to improve the effective exercise of rights and strengthen the confidence of litigants in the settlement of their disputes. To this end, the EEEI is a place for exchanges and collaborative work between European judges, lawyers, experts and academics, leading to tangible achievements of projects supported by the European Commission.
