On 27th May 2016 the Annual General meeting of the European Expertise and Expert Institute was held at the French Court of Cassation in Paris.

The EEEI was created in 2006 and provides a forum for the researchers and practitioners who have a vested interest in the modernisation of Europe’s legal and justice systems.

The Institute offers; a think-tank on the future and harmonisation of judicial expertise in Europe, a medium for the publication of the Institute’s programme and regular reports on its work, a forum for discussion and interdisciplinary research on the various aspects of expertise, a European databank on expertise, a standard of excellence for a comparative reflection on expert training and accreditation, and liaison with many of the Courts and legal bodies across Europe. The President of the European Expertise & Expert Institute is Jean-Raymond Lemaire.

In November 2015, the EEEI published a guide to the instruction of experts in civil legal and dispute resolution matters and a code of ethics that should apply. This is intended to provide a framework for application throughout the EU. The project was financed by a grant from the European Parliament and involved the bringing to together of the experience and knowledge of the member states through a series of working parties.

The Institute is managed by a board known as COMEX which meets every two months and is governed by its members who are consulted every year through the Annual General Meeting. Thomas joins Kay Linnell on the board, who is the other representative from the UK, and also is a governor of the Expert Witness Institute. Next year the Annual General Meeting is due to be held in London.
