About us

Our organisation

Our core mission is to provide a mix of deep insights and practical knowledge about EU policies, to all professionals related to EU public affairs, with the key objective of further improving their skills and capabilities for efficient management of the policies.

We are supported by the EU Member States and the European Commission. We serve officials in national and regional public administrations in Member States, in the European Commission itself, and in other EU institutions. As such, we have developed a vast and strong network across the Member States and various EU institutions, bodies, and agencies.

It is the combination of this network and the experience of our experts that enables us to provide cross-national and cross-institutional comparative, analytical perspectives on EU policies, which, along with our problem-solving approach, makes us one of the longest-standing experts in EU public affairs.

Our training centres

Our headquarters is located in Maastricht (NL) and we have a training centre in Luxembourg (LU). However our experts also share their knowledge at different locations or can do so even at your own premises.

Our Board of Governors is composed of representatives of the EU Member States and associated members. These representatives form a permanent link between EIPA and national public administrations, and also guarantee a strong institutional network at the highest level of public administration throughout Europe.
