Structure of EENeT

The Steering Committee is currently composed of six EENeT members, representatives from the following countries/institutions:

Annual EENeT Conferences and Subgroup Meetings
The annual EENeT Conference provides EENeT members with the opportunity to present ongoing studies and discuss current questions about the phenomenon of terrorism.
The venue and organisation rotate on an annual basis amongst the members.
In Subgroup Meetings the participants have the chance to continue discussion and exchange on specific issues within smaller working groups.
From June 2014 – May 2016 the EENeT is beneficiary of a co-funding by the "Prevention of and Fight against Crime Programme of the European Union".
This funding covers costs to execute two annual conferences (2014 and 2015) for up to 80 people plus follow-up subgroup meetings, to deepen exchange on specific issues that came up during the conference before.
Annual EENeT Conferences and Subgroup Meetings so far:
The next gathering will take place from 14th to 16th of March 2016 at CEPOL, the European Police college. There we want to deepen discussion started in Stockholm in smaller subgroups.

Despite EENeT's relatively short history, the network has already developed and established several channels and procedures for networking:
- Notice-Board: All members may send information or requests about ongoing studies, research questions, conferences and any other relevant information referring to the phenomenon of terrorism to the EENeT Administrative Office, where the messages are gathered and disseminated to all members through sporadically sent Notice Boards.
- Website: The Internet platform may also be used to place relevant information for longer periods.
- Contact Lists: The Administrative Office disseminates within the network lists with contact details of the EENeT members, so that the members may also maintain contact at bilateral level.
- Subgroups: The members may team up EENeT subgroups, to discuss and work on specific issues within smaller working groups.
