Wiggins, who is hoping to gain selection for the Rio 2016 Olympics, is named along with seven other endurance riders, although Ed Clancy is absent with injury.
Becky James is also rested, having only recently returned from a knee injury, but sprinters Katy Marchant, Vicky Williamson and Jess Varnish will all be present, while the men havePhilip Hindes, Matt Crampton, Jason Kenny and Lewis Oliva.
Seven-time European champion Trott is joined by Katie Archibald, Joanna Rowsell-Shand, Elinor Barker and Ciara Horne for the endurance events.
“We’ve selected a strong squad for this year’s European Championships. With the Olympic Games in Rio now less than a year away it’s a great opportunity to secure some vital qualifying points," said technical director Shane Sutton.
“We saw some really promising performances at the British Cycling National Track Championships and the Europeans provide a good chance to put the talent out there and pit themselves against the best in the world.
“Having Bradley Wiggins there for the whole squad is a plus. If you want to go into big battles, you need big leaders and Brad is a big leader. He’s won the Tour, he’s won everything in cycling so it’s good for the squad he is going.”
