The European Defence Agency was established under a Joint Action of the Council of Ministers on 12 July, 2004. On 12 July 2011, the Council adopted a Decision defining the statute, seat and operational rules of the European Defence Agency. This Council decision replaced the Council Joint Action.
The Agency has its headquarters in Brussels.
The main task of the EDA is to support the Member States and the Council in their effort to improve the EU’s defence capabilities in the field of crisis management and to sustain the Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) as it stands now and develops in the future.
The Personal Assistant to the CE will provide administrative and secretarial support to the Chief Executive.
