Presidency of the Council of the EU

Czech Presidency of the Council of the EU (CZ PRES)

The Czech Republic took over the Presidency of the Council of the EU on 1 July 2022 and will carry out this duty until the end of this year, i.e. until 31 December 2022. CTU actively participates in CZ PRES by providing expertise from the headquarters when discussing legislation related to its activities. CTU is thus contributing to the fulfilment of the five priorities that the Czech Republic has set as its agenda for the next 6 months. These are:

  1. Managing the refugee crisis and post-war reconstruction of Ukraine
  2. Energy security
  3. Strengthening European defence capabilities and cybersecurity
  4. Strategic resilience of the European economy
  5. Resilience of democratic institutions
