Who we are and what we do
Established in 2007 as a joint venture between ACEVO (UK), CJDES (France) and Ideell Arena (Sweden), Euclid Network connects 300 members from 31 countries from across Europe for a more innovative, professional and sustainable European civil society. Read the Euclid Network Strategy Document 2012 - 2014 here.
We work to empower the network (through membership and projects) to become the changemakers of civil society - challenging the status quo, bringing solutions to the table and fostering collaboration and peer-learning across boundaries.
How we are funded
Euclid Network receives a core grant from the European Commission, DG Education and Culture. This core funding supports our continuing partnership with the European Union, through which we carry out a number of independent consultation on issues which are important to European civil society and our members in particular. For more information about our advocacy work click here, and for any specific enquiries about our core funding contact Filippo Addarii at email@example.com.
We are also funded to run specifc projects by the European Commission and the United Nations, click here to see our projects. Funding also comes from membership fees, partnerships and training and consultancy that Euclid Network offers.
Where we work
We are a pan-European network working both within and beyond the EU member states. However, we also fully embrace ‘Global Europe', connecting Europeans to civil society across the world. Our projects often take place in specific regions across Europe and are crucial to Euclid Network's regional strategy; tailoring the network to the specific needs of civil society in six core regions:
Western Europe Central and Eastern Europe
Northern Europe Western Balkans
Former Soviet Union Mediterranean
We use the power of the network and the strength of our partnerships with private and public institutions to bring about lasting change for European civil society and society as a whole.
