Reinventing Europe through Local Initiative

AEIDL, the European Association for Information on Local Development, was founded in 1988 by like-minded individuals who believed that European integration could make a positive contribution to citizenship and to the sustainable development of local communities.

Our values

AEIDL’s goal is to support the establishment of a Europe made by citizens for citizens, taking into account the unique social, economic, cultural and environmental aspects of each territory, in a process of sustainable development based on equal opportunities and partnership.


Our services

With extensive experience in the coordination of networks, projects and programmes, AEIDL is well positioned to provide a wide range of services to clients in European and internationally, taking account of linguistic and cultural diversity.


Our projects

Through its array of expertise and technical services, AEIDL aims to promote the emergence of a Europe based on the unified development of its territories and human resources.
