The statues of the Information Centre on European Institutions (CIIE), a non profit association were filed on December 12, 1995. The association was founded by the Urban Community of Strasbourg, the General Council of the Bas Rhine Region and the Alsace Regional Council with support from the European Commission and the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The program opened its doors to the public on December 2, 1996, a year after its foundation. Relaying the information network of the European Union “Europe Direct," the tax incentive program has the mission to inform the public about the European Union, its programs and policies by providing brochures or exhibitions, through the implementation of school activates and conferences, debates or by the creation of educational tools. Because of its location, CIIE also aims to inform on all European institutions in Strasbourg.
