Who we are ?


Founded on the 13 August 1987, the Maison de l’Europe is an independent not-for-profit organisation offering services and activities centred on Europe and the European Union. Participation, information and exposure are at the heart of our mission and we aim to facilitate European activities which are accessible to all.

Our membership includes individuals, municipalities, educational institutions, NGOs, and companies which share an interest in Europe. In 2007, we joined the Europe Direct network and stock a wide variety of documents and resources on the EU in our office.

In May 2012, the Maison de l’Europe received the “Jeunesse et Education populaire” accreditation from the Ministry of Education, Higher Education and Research. This enables us to offer placements to young people as part of the European Voluntary Service programme.

In 2014, the Maison de l’Europe was recognised of general interest to society.

The organization received the hosting, sending and coordinating accreditation for European volunteering service in the frame of European volunteering corps program until December 2021.
