Since 1963, the Europäische Akademie Berlin has been a place of international encounter and political education. From a wide variety of social and political perspectives, people can acquire the skills to understand and shape Europe at this non-partisan and independently organised place.
Our target groups are those people who pass on their knowledge or use it in their everyday decisions: Teachers, politicians, journalists. In the EAB they find a place that gives space for good thoughts, for exchange and for impulses and ideas. Always driven by international diversity and always open to the perspectives of all those interested in European, democratic and social developments, the EAB has two essential characteristics: It deals with current topics related to Europe and it involves all people who want to get involved in Europe and democracy on an equal footing.
We look forward to making our perspectives, our unique conference venue, our project competence and, above all, our networks available to you as well, in order to work with you on a Europe of tomorrow.
