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

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.
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.
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.
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.

Contacts for journalists


EUROPEUM and its activities are co-funded by the European Union within the Operating grants to framework partners active in the area of Union values under the „Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values Programme" (CERV).
We use a dual approach to engage citizens and decision-makers: linking academia and scientists for evidence-based policymaking, and empowering citizens to participate in democratic dialogues on European issues. Our activities bridge the intersecting groups, gather input, and aim to address challenges while promoting European integration and societal cohesion. We conduct independent research, organize events, and promote educational activities that raise awareness of the EU agenda. Through our Brussels office, we provide input to EU consultations and serve as a catalyst for Czech and European visions.
