About EU Strategy
Brussels Office Since2009
A young, dynamic and multicultural team of EU enthusiasts, who enjoy what we are doing. The team is led by Andrea Parola, who has been in the Brussels political landscape for more than more than 20 years. We do understand, as few do, the working of the EU Institutions and be able to guide clients through the complex EU machine. Our main activities focus on two areas:
- Public Affairs, with long-term experience in guiding clients through the complex approval process of European legislation making;
- Association Management, spanning anything from daily operations, to more strategic advocacy.
Independent firm owned by Andrea Parola.
We have a deep understanding of the working practices of EU Institutions. Bearing comparison to our larger competitors, our small team is what makes us stand out from the crowd: the key is versatility and expeditious exchange of information, not headcount.
The objective is tailormade delivery, not slow and corporate decision-making with hierarchic procedures. EU Strategy has a proven track record in delivering the most challenging tasks. Constantly working on a basis of trust and dialogue, our boutique firm gives prominent emphasis to our clients’ needs. Our talents are extremely flexible, nimble, creative and work around the clock.

Thought LeadershipWe strongly believe that thought leadership is when thoughts and innovative ideas are handed down to lead others, and we constantly strive to do so. We have navigated the EU’s political and legislative landscape for the last decade and have produced intelligence reports on political trends; created tailored newsletters for our clients; organised the biannual Forum of ICT Coalition for Children Online and have co-produced research reports with them: “Let’s Play it Safe – Children and Youth in the Digital World”; “The First Report on the implementation of the ICT Principles”; and much more.
