Who are we ?

 
The Center of Information on European Institutions (CIIE) is a member of the network called Europe direct, which is a department of information regarding the European Union. The fruit of a partnership between the Eurometropolis of Strasbourg, region Grand-Est, Department of Bas-Rhin, it was created in 1995 with the cooperation of the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the European Commission. Located on the first floor of the Lieu d’Europe in Strasbourg, its mission is to inform the general public of the European’s programs and politics, as well as the life of all the European institutions located in Strasbourg, thank to informative brochures, expositions and various activities.

From Tuesday to Friday, it is possible to consult various publications in either hard copy or electronic version in our documentation centre, located on the first floor of our building. A librarian will be available in order to help you with your research or to answer your question. The CIIE also provides educational presentation for a young audience thanks to tools adapted to their levels.

The CIIE is managed by a governing board made up of its three founding bodies (the Regional Council of Alsace, the Conseil Général du Bas-Rhin and the Urban Community of Strasbourg). Apart from the three founding bodies, the CIIE is also financed by Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the European Commission and Department of Haut-Rhin.

The association is currently chaired by Ms. Nawel Rafik-Elmrini, Deputy Mayor of Strasbourg in charge of European affairs.
