CEI – Central European Initiative

Founded in 1989, the CEI is a regional intergovernmental forum committed to supporting European integration through cooperation among its Member States. It combines multilateral diplomacy and project management, both as donor and recipient, while bridging European macro-regions.
During the days of the conference, we will be glad to host Amb. Giovanni Caracciolo di Vietri and Sen. Lodovico Sonego.


IECOB – Istituto per l’Europa Centro-Orientale e Balcanica

IECOB was founded in 1995 by scholars from different European and American Universities connected through the “Europe and the Balkans International Network”.

The Institute also cooperates with the Alma Mater-University of Bologna and the University of Sarajevo in organising interdisciplinary postgraduate courses.
