We believe in the values on which the European Union was founded and are determined to foster democratic structures. Our team is committed to upholding the memory of the Holocaust and to translating the lessons of the past into active engagement in the present. We want to contribute to shaping the debate on key challenges of our time.
We are independent
The day-to-day business is driven by the Foundation Team, which is responsible for fostering partnerships, identifying initiatives that are worthwhile supporting and for generating new and innovative projects.
The strategic and operational decisions are supervised by the Governing Council, which consists of a majority of internationally recognized civic leaders and academic experts. They guide the implementation of the Foundation’s activities and programs and oversee its direction.
The Academic Council advises on the direction and nature of academic grants and projects and ensures independent and robust scrutiny of the Foundation’s activities from an academic point of view.
