Public Relations and Special Events
Through Public Relations and Special Events, the Service builds and manages mutually beneficial relationships between the EUI and its public, focusing on two-way communication, i.e. listening to the constituencies on which the organization depends as well as analyzing and understanding the attitudes and behaviours of those audiences.
The Service develops media relations in a pro-active and exclusive way, the media strategy being tailored towards the internal and external community, with a view to establishing platforms for the EUI’s activities to ensure their publicity.
Areas include media relations, alumni and community relations and fundraising, whilst common tools include press conferences, road shows, events organization and coordination of conferences and lectures.
The Press Room presents relevant material about the EUI, its events and its research, for journalists and media representatives.
In 2017 the EUI is collaborating with the Presidenza del Consiglio dei Ministri, Dipartimento per le Politiche Europee, on a series of public events to celebrate the sixtieth anniversary of the Rome Treaties.
The State of the Union conference, organised by the European University Institute (EUI), is an annual event for high-level reflection on the European Union.
