ICEUR-Vienna is an independent and non-partisan think tank which elaborates policy-relevant analytical materials and provides strategic intelligence for select institutional and personal clients. Founded as a brain trust for strategic research in 2008 by prominent personalities from Austria and other EU countries, the academia, the foreign politics and business communities, it was mandated to deal with the relations between the EU and the New Independent States. ICEUR – Vienna has pursued its mission by building its reputation as a forum for the business-like exchange of ideas and the elaboration of policy recommendations as well as providing a meeting place for business people, experts and policy makers bent on achieving concrete outcomes.
We are committed to the paramount goal of promoting mutual understanding and rapprochement of people on both sides of fences and dividing lines in Europe and beyond. Our activities are guided by the principles of non-partisanship, independence and fairness.
ICEUR reports and memorandums generated at its expert meetings are closely followed by political and economic decision makers. For ICEUR, trust building and a responsible treatment of sensitive information is a key priority. Due to its rapid reaction capacities and its privileged access to expert resources, ICEUR-Vienna can offer real-time and in-depth analysis and intelligence as well as efficient fast-track solutions to complex problems.
Over the years, ICEUR has become a channel of interaction that complements existing official diplomatic and economic institutions as well as other settings. Thus ICEUR-Vienna has become a brand name which stands for a dynamically developing venture with a track record and with great potential for future ambitious ventures.
