EUPA

EUROPEAN PUBLIC AFFAIRS

Located at the heart of the European institutions, we guide our clients through the Brussels ecosystem and ensure their influence and input to legislative and regulatory developments.

We support and advocate for both private and public organisations within the European union sphere such as trade associations, National Agencies, NGOs, governments and businesses in Brussels. The team offers regulatory and strategic political insights and supports our clients in all fields of European Union policies.

We analyse and anticipate legislative and policy issues raised by European legislators and help our clients develop public affairs and communication strategies to maximise their interest. We adopt a boutique approach, working hand-in-hand with our clients, using a close-knit and experienced team that sets us apart in a highly standardised market.

Euros / Agency Group is registered in the European Union’s transparency register and is a board member of the European Public Affairs Consultancies Association (EPACA) and a board member of the French Circle of Permanent Delegates (CDPF).

Staying ahead of the curve

Our monitoring unit keeps abreast of the latest legislative, regulatory and policy developments. We benefit from a vast network across the EU institutional environment and Member State representations. We also carry out competitive benchmarking to better understand the interplay of players and identify relevant European funds and funding programmes.

 

Communicating in Brussels

We organise events (steering committee meetings, themed workshops, conferences at the European Parliament, parliamentary lunches) where key players in the targeted sectors meet. We deploy communication campaigns in order to bring our clients’ concerns to the debate in European media, and ultimately to the desks of political decision-makers. 

Giving you influence at the heart of the institutions

We advise our clients through briefing notes and support in the development of tools (position papers, white papers, institutional booklets). We establish the link with European public decision-makers and build coalition strategies with third parties (interest groups, trade associations, think tanks). Finally, we assist our clients in responding to the European Commission’s public consultations in order to strengthen their visibility and influence on public decisions

Keeping you informed on EU developments

We offer the members of our network the opportunity to meet and exchange at the workshops that we organize on current topics and through the regular publication of online content. We train our clients’ teams on European policies and the challenges of representing interests in Brussels. Finally, we regularly share our expertise with delegations of professionals and students.
