EUROPEUM Brussels Office
Building on a long history of EUROPEUM in Prague we opened our office in Brussels in January 2016. EUROPEUM has been the first think-tank from Central Europe to branch out to the heart of the European Union. Our motivation has been to follow the debates on EU policies and politics from a close perspective and to contribute to them by strengthening the voice of the Czech Republic and other central and east European countries. At the same time, we would like to use our Brussels presence to boost the discussions on the EU back in the region, through introducing research by Brussels-based experts, offering their perspective at local events, cooperation with the media, etc.
