The Information Centre on European Institutions (CIIE) is part of the EU information network, Europe Direct. The fruit of a partnership between the Eurometropolis of Strasbourg, the Grand-Est region, and the Bas-Rhin department, it was created in 1995. Located on the first floor of the Lieu d’Europe in Strasbourg, its mission is to inform the general public of the European’s programs and policies, as well as the life of all the European institutions located in Strasbourg, thanks to informative brochures, exhibitions and various activities.
From Tuesday to Friday, it is possible to consult various publications in different languages, in either hard copy or electronic version, in our documentation centre, located on the first floor of our building. A librarian will help you with your research and answer your questions.
The CIIE also provides educational presentations for classes with tools adapted to their school level.
The CIIE is managed by a governing board made up of three founding bodies (the Grand-Est region, the Departmental Council of Bas-Rhin department and the Eurometropolis of Strasbourg). Apart from the three founding bodies, the CIIE is also financed by the European Commission and the Haut-Rhin Department.
The association is currently chaired by Ms. Nawel Rafik-Elmrini, Deputy Mayor of Strasbourg in charge of European and international affairs.
