Fundatia EuroEd came into being as a non-profit organisation in 1992, with the support of the Soros Foundation and the British Council Romania. It is located in Iași, Romania and delivers educational services to different age groups of learners. Moreover, it constantly develops a series of programmes, including language courses, international training courses for language teachers, professional trainings in the field of tourism, IT, mentoring, communication, etc. By co-ordinating and participating in various EU funded projects, Fundatia EuroEd brings together considerable knowledge in various areas of education. Additionally, every year the institution takes in strategies and methodologies of co-operation at local, regional, national and trans-national levels.
The Centre for European Integration was founded in 1998 by Fundatia EuroEd as a result of addressability and constant development of services. Over the years, Fundatia EuroEd has co-ordinated and implemented over 100 national and international educational projects in cooperation with this centre. Many of the implemented and coordinated projects are in the field of: learning languages for specific purposes, online resources, educational materials, games and drama techniques, networks, employability, development of competences for job profiles, social inclusion, medicine, motivation and support, promoting quality in developing European projects, sports, social responsibility and volunteering, etc.
The high status of the institution of being the most important non-governmental educational institution in north-eastern Romania is the result of its relentless pursuit of principles such as devotement, professionalism and consistency. Fundatia EuroEd is also a founding member of QUEST (The Romanian Association for Quality Language Services), which is an associate member of EAQUALS (the European Association for Quality Language Services).
As a result of our fruitful cooperation, many of our projects have been awarded European distinctions of the highest level: 12 international awards in the last 5 years for the quality of its projects: 9 European Label Awards and a Worldaware distinction.
Moreover, two of the projects led by EuroEd were selected by the EU Commission as examples of best practices in its collection called LINGO.
Fundatia EuroEd aims at supporting the reform processes of civic society by promoting high-quality standards in accordance with European Community requirements in the field of education, civil society, public policies, youth, law, culture, mass media, and regional development. Through its initiatives, Fundatia EuroEd intends to act as a regional catalyst for debating and developing regional and international projects which aim at facilitating exchange of ideas and experience in the field of democracy and European Integration.
