Foundation Membership

Foundation Membership 

Foundation Members form the core of the Institute from both a financial and a strategic perspective. 

Organisations who are members of the Institute at this level recognise that Ireland needs an independent think tank, which forms a bridge between policy makers and the private sector. 

Their support allows us to provide a forum where stakeholders from a wide spectrum of professions and business sectors can network with decision makers and benefit from the IIEA as a resource for up to date information and strategic analysis of European and international affairs. 

A full list of all current Foundation Members is available here.

Foundation members enjoy the same benefits as Corporate Members, and a number of additional benefits:
