Building EIPA Maastricht

EIPA is the leading centre of European learning and development for the public sector. With over 35 years of experience, EIPA is the place where people who deal with European affairs can learn in a multicultural environment benefiting from our unique combination of practical know-how and scientific excellence. In addition to the Maastricht-based headquarters, EIPA has offices in Luxembourg and Barcelona. Its staff represents around twenty nationalities.  As a non-for-profit Dutch foundation, EIPA is partly subsidized by EU Member States and the EU. An increasing part of EIPA’s income is generated from its activities, which requires the Institute to flexibly react to the needs of its clients as well as a business-like and innovative approach within the Institute.
