We cover Europe's news

Our teams ensure news coverage of events taking place in the institutions of the European Union: meetings, official visits, press conferences, signing of treaties. Wherever news happens, in Europe or elsewhere, major events in the construction of Europe and statements by major European personalities are recorded as they take place.

They are made immediately available to media professionals world-wide. Our live coverage of events, news summaries, info-clips, stockshots and photo reports illustrate the different EU activities and are aimed at helping the international media during the coverage of European events.

The living memory of Europe

We offer you access to the most extensive library of audiovisual documents in existence on the construction of the European Union. They are witness to the history of Europe from the first steps of the Common Market until the era of peace, security, prosperity and solidarity of the European Union today. This is part of Europe's living memory available not only to journalists, but also to anyone wishing to view the key moments of Community history.


Photo

Picturing Europe

We deliver extensive photo coverage of all main EU-related news. From the European Coal and Steel Community to the latest EU events we offer photo coverage, in both black & white and colour, both of the founders of the European Community and the main events of the last half century of European history.

Available products include archive photos covering the main events since the 1950s on Community themes.


Audio

The voices of Europe

We provide daily news coverage in broadcast quality audio. The Audiovisual Library offers you voices of Europe expressed in its many languages in key speeches and declarations by key players in the construction of Europe as all major events, negotiations and agreements took place. The Audiovisual Library's sound archive footage covers the principal developments since World War II.
