European Parliament Network of Political Houses and Foundations of Great Europeans
Founded in 2017
European Network of Political Houses and Foundations of Great Europeans
The European Parliament (EP) Network of Political Foundations and Houses was initiated in 2017 by Herr Klaus Welle the then Secretary General of the European Parliament. The aim of the network is to develop a broader family of the houses and foundations of leading figures who have made a significant contribution to the process of European integration since 1945.
The inaugural meeting was held at the EP in Brussels on 17 November 2017. The Network, sponsored and chaired by the European Parliamentary Research Service, meets every 6 months, in November at the EP in Brussels and in May at the Jean Monnet House at Houjarry about 40 kms to the west of Paris.
There are currently 16 members of the Network and they have shared much useful information on best practice and the exchange of ideas in respect of events and exhibitions. The two UK members of the Network are Chartwell and Arundells.
The main achievement so far has been the development of the Network’s website. To find out more visit EP Network of Political Houses and Foundations of Great Europeans
