About EAIE

Founded in 1989, the EAIE is the European centre for expertise, networking and resources in the internationalisation of higher education.

At the EAIE, we are building an ecosystem where fresh ideas and best practices can flourish and shape the field of internationalisation. As a member-led organisation, we provide a platform for learning, networking and knowledge exchange. Our activities are geared towards helping professionals succeed in their work. We equip academic and non-academic professionals with best practices and workable solutions to internationalisation challenges and provide a platform for strategic exchange. We partner with key stakeholder organisations and institutions to promote our membership interests and advance international higher education. In short, we are dedicated to promoting and driving responsible international education in Europe and beyond. 

EAIE Vision

Our vision is an equitable world in which international education connects diverse perspectives and fosters greater understanding. We believe that international education has the power to create a better world. 

EAIE Mission

Our mission is three-fold. We aim to enable the international higher education sector, demonstrate the impact of internationalisation, and influence and engage policymakers in support of our vision. 

EAIE Strategy 2026: a plan for an equitable future

The current strategy is the product of an extensive collaborative process between stakeholders in the sector, volunteer leaders, members and EAIE staff. Our strength lies in the diversity of voices in our community which together help make us stronger and more prepared to tackle emerging issues as they develop in the education sector and the world at large. 

In addition to the bigger picture, we aspire to serve our sector the best way we can. This includes our approach to operational excellence that encompasses investment in people, efficient use of our resources, and streamlining processes based on responsible, responsive and sustainable practices. Take a look at the video below to see how we are planning to achieve our vision.
