EPIC - the European Policy Information Centre is an independent network of over 100 consultants and trainers who specialise in issues related to European integration. Founded in 1999, EPIC does not act on behalf of any governmental office or European institution, and aims to provide factual evidence, when highlighting the strengths, but also the shortcomings of the European project. EPIC draws on the insider knowledge of practitioners and scholars from across Europe, east and west, north and south. Our mission is to bring together experts with those keen on furthering their understanding of the EU.

Spring and Autumn 2020: months spent self-isolating in front of a computer. After yet another round of Zoom consulting, our thoughts turned longingly to a pandemic-free future, and we decided to make an addition to our range of activities: TRAVEL.
One hopes that Brexit and a growing distrust of the EU does not preclude travelling to other European destinations and to engage with fellow Europeans. Europe is so much more than EU regulations, a single currency, or a big market. This new website is a celebration of Europe in all its glorious diversity, and hopefully we might ignite that little spark of inspiration that gets you on your way to experience our beautiful continent. Go ahead. The advice is free! Here's the link:
