Europe Day 9th May 2023

"Celebrating Peace and Unity"

A few words about..

Europe Day is celebrated on May 9th every year to commemorate the historic “Schuman Declaration,” which marked the beginning of the European Union. On this day in 1950, French Foreign Minister Robert Schuman proposed the creation of a European Coal and Steel Community, which would unite European countries and help prevent future wars by pooling the resources of its member states. Today, Europe Day is an opportunity to celebrate the unity and diversity of the European Union and its accomplishments over the past seven decades.

The European Union is a unique political and economic union that comprises 27 member states in Europe. It was formed with the aim of promoting peace, prosperity, and cooperation among its member states. The EU has been successful in achieving these goals by creating a single market, promoting trade and investment, and establishing common policies on issues such as the environment, security, and social policies.

In addition to the economic benefits, the EU has also played a vital role in promoting democracy, human rights, and the rule of law across Europe. The EU’s commitment to these values has helped to promote stability and security in the region, and has been instrumental in fostering peace and reconciliation in countries that were once divided by conflict.


Europe Day is an opportunity to celebrate these achievements and to reflect on the challenges that lie ahead. As the world becomes more interconnected, the EU will need to continue to adapt and evolve to meet new challenges and opportunities. This includes addressing issues such as climate change, migration, and global security threats.


At the same time, the EU must also continue to work towards building a more inclusive and sustainable future for all its citizens. This means addressing issues such as social inequality, gender equality, and the protection of human rights.

The role of EU projects

EU projects are an essential part of the Union’s efforts to achieve its goals. They are initiatives funded by the EU that aim to support innovation, research, and development, social and economic growth, environmental sustainability, and other areas that benefit EU citizens. EU projects are open to all types of organizations, including non-governmental organizations (NGOs), universities, research centers, and businesses.

Research NGOs play a critical role in EU projects, as they contribute to the development of innovative solutions to societal challenges, such as climate change, poverty, and inequality. They also play a vital role in promoting research collaboration and knowledge sharing among EU member states.


As a research NGO that focuses on European projects, we believe that Europe Day is an important reminder of the critical role that research and innovation can play in shaping the future of Europe. Through our work, we aim to contribute to the development of innovative solutions that can address some of the most pressing challenges facing Europe today.


Europe Day is a time to celebrate the achievements of the EU and to reflect on the challenges that lie ahead. It is a day to reaffirm our commitment to the shared values and goals that unite the people of Europe, and to work towards building a more inclusive, sustainable, and prosperous future for all.
