EUNIC (European Union National Institutes for Culture) is Europe's network of national cultural institutes, with 36 members from all 28 EU member states and offices in over 150 countries. EUNIC members work in the arts, languages, youth, education, science, society, intercultural dialogue and development.
The EUNIC Ireland cluster was founded in 2009 and is composed of Alliance Française/Embassy of France in Ireland, Austrian Embassy, British Council Ireland, Culture Ireland, Goethe-Institut, Instituto Cervantes/AECID, Istituto Italiano di Cultura, Embassy of Bulgaria, Embassy of Greece and Embassy of Romania/Romanian Cultural Institute.
The main purpose of the association is to create effective partnerships and networks between the participating organisations, to improve and promote cultural diversity and understanding between European societies, and to strengthen international dialogue and co-operation within and outside Europe.
