FEPS celebrates its annual General Assembly and welcomes new members


The Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) held its annual General Assembly on 20 June. A central debate took place to assess the outcome of the European elections and to define the FEPS strategy to be translated into the next Annual Framework Programme. This year’s assembly brought significant developments and new members to the organisation.

We are delighted to announce the inclusion of two new observer members:

  • Fondazione Demo: This Italian foundation aims to steer innovation towards a fairer future for both people and the planet.
  • Eteron—Institute for Research and Social Change: A non-profit Greek organisation dedicated to generating knowledge, empowering citizens, and fostering partnerships. Eteron works to strengthen arguments, ideas, individuals, and organisations to ensure that people’s actual needs are prioritised in public discourse.

Additionally, we proudly announce that Fundação Mário Soares e Maria Barroso has transitioned from Observer to Full Member.

Finally, in accordance with the rotation principle outlined in FEPS internal regulations, there has been a change in our Bureau members. Following a vote by the General Assembly, the Greek foundation DIKTIO replaces the Dutch foundation Max van der Stoel (FMS) in the Bureau. On behalf of FEPS leadership and team, we want to thank FMS representatives for their professionalism and commitment over the past five years.
