European Image

IEI Europa

On 20 April 2017, a statement by the President of the European Commission, Mr Jean-Claude Juncker, welcomed the establishment of the European Institute, Image of Europe, and reiterated his encouragement for its European commitment.

IEI will be a tool for reflection to serve both the European institutions and for the civil society, feeding into a constructive debate for preserving the legacy of the Founding Fathers and for the unification of the EU.

The presidency of the institute is entrusted to Mr Patrick Huart to thank him for his contribution of 30 years to the service of Europe. The honorary presidency goes to Mr Jacques Santer, former President of the European Commission.
