We aim to transform the strategic partnership between the European Union, Latin America and the Carribean into an invigorated reality.

The EU-LAC Foundation is entrusted with the mission of strengthening and promoting the strategic bi-regional relationship, enhancing its visibility and fostering active participation of the respective civil society.

“The EU–LAC Foundation can provide an important platform for mobilising its 62 member countries from Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean in implementing the new sustainable development agenda.”
Rebeca Grynspan

"The Foundation has been a fundamental ally of Ibero-America and the SEGIB. With the transformation of the Foundation into an International Organisation, the best moments of the alliance between our institutions, companies and universities of both regions begin."
María Solanas

“The fact that the EU-LAC Foundation is an International Organisation allows it to have greater impact on key issues, such as the fight against climate change, sustainable development and the promotion and defence of gender equality."
Juan Pablo De Laiglesia
Secretary of State for International Cooperation for Ibero-America and the Caribbean
"The Foundation is the result of an intensive process, anchored in shared values by both regions, values as fundamental as democracy defence, human rights or sustainable development."
Olaf Scholz

“The Installation of the EU-LAC Foundation in Hamburg is not just an answer to the political upturn of Latin America, but also takes into account the enormous potential of this region.”
