Founded in 2020 as a grass-root initiative, the EAEF is dedicated to supporting the comprehensive development of multilateral relations among European, Asian, and North American states and markets by conducting independent public and empirical research, as well as promoting free and open dialogues among diasporas, industries and interest groups.

Through public events, publications, social media and public media engagements, the EAEF’s platform aims to provide a variety of opportunities in encouraging discussions and communications among professionals, industry leaders and academics across the world.
