Our mission

EIPA was created in 1981 on the occasion of the first European Council held in Maastricht, and is supported by the EU Member States and the European Commission.

Our core mission is to provide high quality training courses to develop the capacities of professionals, national and regional public administrations dealing with EU affairs, as well as the European Institutions. We offer long-standing expertise combined with problem- and practice-based teaching modules. We have been awarded four times the Framework Contract and offer and host many contract activities. At EIPA you benefit from our close ties with the European Commission, EU institutions and the different Member States.


Training Centres

We offer a broad range of high-quality training courses, from seminars to e-learning and tailor-made courses. Our training courses take place in our headquarters in Maastricht, an important hub of European dialogue, or in our training centre in Luxembourg or Barcelona. Do you want to change the date, location or programme of a course? Request a tailor-made course to meet the needs of your organisation or institute.


What sets us apart?

The variety of our training courses are perfect to integrate into the demanding schedules of busy professionals. They are designed to help you find your way through EU processes and policies, whilst strengthening your capacity to perform effectively in this area. Moreover, they take place in a European environment. You benefit directly from the views and best practices from participants from a wide variety of countries and sectors: a great opportunity to network!
