EU IDEA has put together 15 EU and extra-EU partners in a joint research and dissemination effort coordinated by Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI), from January 2019 to April 2022.

The EU IDEA’s consortium has been set up with the aim to achieve the project’s three expected impact – scientific, policy, and public – according to the highest standards. In building the consortium, the following criteria have been taken into account: academic excellence, reputation, experience in international projects, appropriate mix of academic institutions and think tanks, solid expertise in all policy fields, European geographic comprehensiveness, and gender balance.

The consortium includes 15 partners based in nine EU Member States plus UK, from different areas of the Union (Belgium, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain), two EU candidate countries (North Macedonia, Turkey), and two third-countries (Norway, Switzerland).
