The Court thus constitutes the judicial authority of the European Union and, in cooperation with the courts and tribunals of the Member States, it ensures the uniform application and interpretation of EU law.
The Court of Justice of the European Union, which has its seat in Luxembourg, consists of two courts: the Court of Justice and the General Court (created in 1988). The Civil Service Tribunal, established in 2004, ceased to operate on 1 September 2016 after its jurisdiction was transferred to the General Court in the context of the reform of the European Union’s judicial structure.

OLAF European Anti-Fraud Office

The European Union budget finances a wide range of programmes and projects which improve the lives of citizens across the EU and beyond. The improper use of funds provided by the EU budget or the evasion of the taxes, duties and levies, which fund the EU budget directly harms European citizens and prejudices the entire European project.

The European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF) is the only EU body mandated to detect, investigate and stop fraud with EU funds. While it has an individual independent status in its investigative function, OLAF is also part of the European Commission, under the responsibility of Günther H. Oettinger, Commissioner in charge of Budget & Human Resources.

Austria's Permanent Representation to the EU

The Permanent Representation of Austria to the European Union is Austria's "embassy" at the EU so to speak; and it is the largest of all Austrian diplomatic missions worldwide. Some 140 people represent Austria's interests here, including foreign ministry staff and experts from each of the federal ministries, the Liaison Office of the Federal Provinces as well as representatives of the social partners, the Federation of Austrian Industry, the Austrian National Bank, the Association of Municipalities and the Association of Cities and Towns. Ambassador Mag. Walter Grahammer is the head of the Permanent Representation that was established in 1995 when Austria joined the EU.

We promote the abilities and skills of people in schools and universities, public administration, public life, as well as the economy to develop long-term perspectives, actively shape change processes, and act in an informed and responsible manner in the context of Europeanization and globalization.

European Commission

The European Commission (EC) is an institution of the European Union, responsible for proposing legislation, implementing decisions, upholding the EU treaties and managing the day-to-day business of the EU. Commissioners swear an oath at the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg, pledging to respect the treaties and to be completely independent in carrying out their duties during their mandate.

The Commission operates as a cabinet government, with 28 members of the Commission (informally known as "commissioners"). EU as a whole rather than their home state. One of the 28 is the Commission President (currently Jean-Claude Juncker) proposed by the European Council and elected by the European Parliament.  The Council of the European Union then nominates the other 27 members of the Commission in agreement with the nominated President, and the 28 members as a single body are then subject to a vote of approval by the European Parliament. The current Commission is the Juncker Commission, which took office in late 2014.

Council of the European Union

The Council of the European Union is the third of the seven Institutions of the European Union (EU) as listed in the Treaty on European Union. It is part of the essentially bicameral EU legislature (the other legislative body being the European Parliament) and represents the executive governments of the EU's member states. It is based in the Europa building in Brussels.

According to the old dictum, "The Commission proposes, and the Council disposes". The Council of Ministers is the only EU Institution that is not "European". Rather, it is a forum where ministers from Member States may validly express and represent their own national interests.

The Federal City of Bonn is a city on the banks of the Rhine in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia, with a population of over 300,000. About 24 km (15 mi) south-southeast of Cologne, Bonn is in the southernmost part of the Rhine-Ruhr region, Germany's largest metropolitan area, with over 11 million inhabitants.

Because of a political compromise following German reunification, the German state maintains a substantial presence in Bonn, and the city is considered a second, unofficial, capital of the country. Bonn is the secondary seat of the President, the Chancellor, the Bundesrat and the primary seat of six federal government ministries and twenty federal authorities. The unique title of Federal City (German: Bundesstadt) reflects its important political status within Germany.

Stadt Neuss

Its geographical positioning along with excellent connections and infrastructure are strong arguments for the location of Neuss. They are not, however, the only ones. The local business environment is spot on! Neuss is economically one of the strongest cities in Europe and has high productivity according to international comparisons. Thanks to relatively low office rents and favorable business tax rates, it has become a popular location for international companies. Worldwide operational companies such as Toshiba, 3M or Asics - to name just a few - have their European and German headquarters in Neuss.
