About Nove

Brussels Office Since


Firm Description

As a leading independent EU public affairs consultancy based in Brussels, NOVE’s journey is a tale of entrepreneurship and trust. Our success comes from the quality of our services and our commitment to our clients.

We base our work on the conviction that every client is unique, and on the ambition to ensure they are successful and impactful in their advocacy and engagement towards the European institutions and relevant stakeholders.

We rely on our consultants to make the difference. Our team is composed of around 30 colleagues representing more than 15 nationalities, including former EU insiders from the European Parliament, European political parties and Council Presidencies, as well as seasoned consultants with a strong network in the institutions and industry associations. This blend of insider knowledge and consulting expertise ensures our clients are always ahead, benefiting from timely intelligence on political and policy developments. Going beyond personal relationships, we always engage strategically with all policymakers and stakeholders.

Ownership Structure


International Network

We have built relationships with a series of like-minded, recognised, independent public affairs and communications agencies in key geographies, from the biggest European markets to the countries holding the rotating Presidencies of the Council of the EU. These partnerships provide us with agile presence and operationality in important capitals.

Key Strengths

As a fast-growing company, we work a little differently than most other agencies in the ‘EU bubble’. We have managed to overcome the challenge of scaling up as a small company by fostering our start-up mentality to make this a unique selling point.

Innovation lies at the heart of NOVE. We continuously invest in our proprietary technology solutions, including an advanced knowledge and relationship management software. This commitment to technology not only enhances our service delivery but also keeps us at the forefront of the ongoing digital revolution.

Our UNESCO-listed offices in Brussels are not just a workspace but a hub for connection. Here, we regularly organize exclusive networking events, providing our clients with invaluable opportunities to meet each other and engage with key European policymakers in a meaningful way.

Testimonials and why clients like to work with us

Almost all clients who joined us upon our launch are still working with us. Since then, many companies, industry associations and patient organisations have entrusted us with directing their positioning and advocacy in the Brussels bubble.

We believe that a successful client-agency relationship is fundamentally based on passion, chemistry between people, and two-way trust in how we operate. This is why we aim at integrating ourselves early on and as much as possible with our clients. This investment allows us to be recognised as reliable partners, able to define the best path forward for our clients. It also explains why we prioritise long-term partnerships over short-term transactions.
