ABOUT

Euronet Consulting has since 1990 represented a diverse group of well-established European consultancy companies.

We have developed the capability and experience to provide a broad range of highly-specialised services to members and clients over 20 years of operations.

Euronet Consulting is both a pan-European group of cutting-edge consultancy companies and a global network consisting of carefully vetted partners in Official Development Assistance (ODA) countries.

The group was established in 1990 as a coordination hub for the management of joint operations in a broad number of thematic sectors.  Over time it evolved to become a means by which services of member companies have been made readily available to major international donors, primarily the Commission of the European Union.

This has involved the implementation of several Framework Contracts, the aim of which is to organise short-term missions to identify, prepare, monitor and evaluate projects in a wide variety of professional fields.

In over 20 years of operations, Euronet Consulting and its members have organised well over 4000 such missions to 150 countries in the Asian, Africa, Latin American and European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument  (ENPI) regions.

Our Mission is to support member companies competing in international service procurement markets.

Our Vision is to be a unique network of highly specialised consultancy companies contributing to the objectives of sustainable development and poverty reduction.

Our Values:

Integrity: We believe that the principles of transparency and competition are the best means to prevent corrupt practices, reward quality and spread equality of business opportunities.

Quality: We constantly strive to ensure the highest quality for each process, together with the related inputs and outputs.

Diversity: We are committed to preventing and fighting discrimination of any form and recognise the high value that a diverse workforce brings in providing new perspectives on our approach to service delivery.

Euronet Consulting is a one-stop hub for all types of development projects, and a coordination centre providing tailored information and business support services. Customisation of our services and the international reach of the group help us create additional value that benefits clients and members alike.

It ensures consistency of policy direction and has overall control over Euronet Consulting’s activities.

Member companies are equally represented at the General Meeting, with each having one vote.

The Board of Management is primarily responsible for policy implementation and steering business operations. It is composed by individuals elected by members at the General Meeting.
