In a world that is dominated by new technologies, the full effects of which we have yet to discover, developed societies have adopted a policy based on the precautionary principle. Politicians appoint expert committees, and judges call on experts to assist them in their judicial proceedings. The role of expertise in contemporary society should thus be analysed in depth. The European Expertise and Expert Institute was founded in November 2006 to achieve this objective.

This guide is the result of several years’ work led by the European Expertise and Expert Institute (EEEI) with the support of the European Commission’s DG Justice.
As the final result of the EGLE project, the Guide was created by a consensus conference based on the cooperation and comparative experience of a panel of 60 contributors from 12 EU countries who came together in working groups, meeting over 25 times in the past year. Their discussions and recommendations were put to the test during a public plenary conference that took place in May 2015 in Rome and was attended by 160 people from 22 countries – Judges, lawyers, experts, and academics, representatives from Supreme Courts and European institutions.
