Visits to Eurostat
Every year, Eurostat receive requests from journalists and media representatives to visit Eurostat, to meet with management and staff, and learn more about the day-to-day activities.
We also receive a number of requests from other groups, such as civil servants, NGOs, politicians and universities, typically Masters' students. Visitors to Eurostat are keen to discover the world of statistics, understand better how they play a role in everyday life and dive deeper into specific subject areas.
If you are a journalist, please contact Eurostat's Press Office.
For all other visits to Eurostat, please note that following a temporary suspension due to the Covid-19 situation, physical visits are possible again and will be considered on a case by case basis with some restrictions still applying. Virtual visits may also be possible.
If you are interested in a visit, please email us at ESTAT VISITS with details of what you are seeking and we will consider your particular request.
The following conditions apply to Eurostat visits:
We welcome groups of 8-25 people, including university-level students in economics, finance, statistics, European studies, etcetera. We expect that participants are familiar with the world of official statistics and/or have an interest in this area.
Visits can take place from Monday afternoon until Friday lunchtime. Morning sessions are typically scheduled between 10.00 and 12.00, and afternoon sessions between 14.00 and 16.00.
We are unable to accept visits on public holidays or during periods when Eurostat's offices are closed.
We can offer two presentations per visit:
- A general overview of Eurostat, its role and activities, followed by questions and answers.
- A second presentation on an area of your specific interest.
Presentations will ordinarily be made in English. Depending on the chosen subject area and availability of our information officers, French and German might be possible for some sessions.
Given the level of interest shown in Eurostat by students and professionals, requests should be sent at least eight weeks before the planned date of the visit.
Visits to Eurostat are free of charge.
In exceptional circumstances, Eurostat reserves the right to cancel a planned visit.
