The European Network of the Heads of Environment Protection Agencies (EPA Network) is an informal grouping bringing together the heads of environment protection agencies and similar bodies across Europe. The network exchanges views and experiences on issues of common interest to organisations involved in the practical day-to-day implementation of environmental policy and communication of environmental issues.

Plenary meetings are held twice a year in one of the member countries. The plenary sets the strategic direction of the Network and provides a platform for heads to meet and discuss current topics of interest.  The plenary also deals with organisational issues of the network.

The EPA Network arranges its work through various Interest Groups (IG). There are currently eight active Interest Groups:

  • Better Regulation
  • Citizen Science
  • Climate Change and Adaptation
  • Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO)
  • Green and Circular Economy
  • Noise abatement
  • Plastics
  • West Balkan


The EEA actively participates in the Network as well as in the organising Troika. The EPA Network Secretariat is located in the EEA premises in Copenhagen.
