Euro Créative

Based in Paris since 2019, Euro Créative is an independent and non-profit think tank focused on Central and Eastern Europe. Given the lack of specialized actors working on this region in France, Euro Créative has the ambition to become the most important French organization regarding the multi-thematic and transdisciplinary study of Central and Eastern Europe. Our platform of reflection will thus play a role in stimulating relations between France and the countries of the region.
