About us

Our mission

EUROPEUM Institute for European Policy is a non-profit, non-partisan, and independent think-tank focusing on European integration and cohesion. EUROPEUM contributes to democracy, security, stability, freedom, and solidarity across Europe as well as to active engagement of the Czech Republic in the European Union. EUROPEUM undertakes original research, organizes public events and educational activities, and formulates new ideas and recommendations to improve European and Czech policy making.
 

Our values

INDEPENDENCE
EUROPEUM is a non-partisan think-tank, not affiliated with any Czech or European political party or movement. Its financing sources are transparent and its activities carried out without interference from its funders. The largest donors are the European Commission, the International Visegrad Fund, the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic.
 
COOPERATION
EUROPEUM implements its activities in close cooperation with like-minded partners, especially other Czech and European think-tanks and NGOs, other civil society actors and the media, in order to enhance their outreach.
 
RESPONSIBILITY
EUROPEUM takes a firm responsibility and commitment to provide platforms for discussion and introduce new ideas about the EU. EUROPEUM's responsibilities are towards stakeholders, the Czech society and the European Union as a community of citizens and values.
 
CREDIBILITY
EUROPEUM ensures the high quality of its outputs and overall credibility of its work, by counting on trusted experts, by peer-reviewing of its publications, by the continuous exchange of know-how with other think-tanks and partners, and by conducting purely evidence-based research and analysis with academic rigour.
