Welcome to policylab.eu! We are a boutique ideas lab and consultancy. We work on European issues, communications and ideas. How can we help you?

Our services


We are at home in Europe – we think and breathe European. We are here to Europeanise your project. And we love complex challenges: From European foreign policy to peacemaking; from European journalism to higher education. If you have an idea or a project that needs some serious European input – be it political, editorial or strategic – just drop us an email!


Communications is our profession. Over the past decade we have developed complex strategies for international think tanks, helped European non-profits with media outreach, developed new media formats, and produced innovative products such as engaging newsletters or policy podcasts. So, get in touch – whatever comms challenge you throw at us, we’ll get it done!


policylab.eu is an ideaslab. We develop ideas for a wide range of organisations: from think tanks and non-profits to associations and universities. We design tailor-made processes to turn problems into solutions. Together with our clients we develop a deeper understanding of the challenges and jointly create a path to sustainable change. Contact us for an informal chat!
