EFTA Experts Seconded to Eurostat

There are several seconded statistical experts representing EFTA States in Eurostat. These secondments are important as they secure the exchange of knowledge and promote integration of the European Statistical System.

At this time there are three categories of Seconded National Experts (SNEs):

  • EEA EFTA SNEs: Seconded experts as a contribution in kind for the publication and the dissemination of EEA EFTA statistical data.
  • EFTA SNEs: Seconded experts as a contribution in kind from the EFTA Secretariat to the statistical cooperation programmes of Eurostat. This category of SNE is governed by an Administrative Arrangement on technical cooperation between EFTA and Eurostat. 
  • Swiss Bilateral SNEs: Seconded experts as a contribution in kind by Switzerland.
