EUNIC (European Union National Institutes for Culture) is the network of institutes for culture of the EU member states responsible for promoting their national art and culture abroad. Formed in 2006, it has 32 members from 26 countries.
EUNIC’s members have an international reputation as Europe’s leading cultural relations practitioners. They seek to facilitate cultural co-operation; to create lasting partnerships between professionals, to encourage greater understanding and awareness of the diverse European cultures and to encourage greater language learning (over 2 million people learn European languages with EUNIC members).
EUNIC Clusters formed by the representations of these institutes in many countries of the world seek to implement common cultural projects that highlight both aspects of national art and culture and the common cultural heritage of Europe.
The EUNIC Cluster India was formed in 2007 and currently has ten member institutions: British Council, Goethe-Institut/Max Mueller Bhavan, Alliance Francaise, Istituto Italiano di Cultura, Instituto Cervantes, Instituto Camoes, Hungarian Information and Cultural Centre, Wallonie-Bruxelles International, Polish Institute and the Austrian Cultural Forum.
