Europe is more than the EU

EAEA pays specific attention to members who are based outside of the EU and who lack some of the opportunities for cooperation that are available within the EU. To better serve their needs, in 2021 EAEA established a working group “Europe is more than the EU”, which includes EAEA Executive Board members. The group, whose main focus is on organisations based in Eastern Europe, developed the following results:

  • A survey on the needs of EAEA non-EU members based in Eastern Europe, available in EN, BCSM and RU;
  • A roadmap towards a closer cooperation between EAEA and its non-EU members, available in EN, BCSM and RU.

The objectives of the roadmap are now included in the EAEA workplan for 2021 and 2022, and EAEA is planning a series of activities targeting specifically non-EU members. For more information about the working group “Europe is more than the EU”, please contact Aleksandra at aleksandra.kozyra [at] eaea.org.
