    On 9 May 1950, Robert Schuman presented a proposal on the creation of an organised Europe, a plan which would be indispensable to the maintenance of peaceful relations.

    This proposal, known as the “Schuman declaration”, is considered to be the beginning of what is now the European Union.

    Today, the 9th of May has become a European symbol (Europe Day) which, along with the flag, the anthem, the motto and the single currency (the Euro), identifies the political entity of the European Union. Europe day is the ideal occasion to carry our activities and festivities that help to bring Europe closer to its citizens and also unite people of the Union closer to one another.

    As the spirit of European Union is at the heart of the EIB’s activities, we will be present in the Europe Day festivities in both Luxembourg and Brussels, gladly participating in the event with a stand  manned by a group of employees from various departments.

    Seize the opportunity to get to know us better, by visiting our stand. There, you will have the chance to take part in our quizzes and win souvenirs and gadgets.

    We are looking forward to meeting you all on Europe Day!
