Tasks and Objectives

Representing Thuringian Interests
The office represents the interests of Thuringia towards the EU institutions and provides a platform for the Thuringian government in Brussels.

Early Warning System
At an early stage, the office informs the state government on planned activities of the EU, filters, which drafts are of particular importance for Thuringia’s politics and suggests on how to react. It observes the legislative process and informs interested parties.

Opening Doors
Through networking the office provides Thuringian politicians and business partners with appropriate contacts in the EU institutions.

Showcase
To present Thuringia and its cultural diversity in Brussels is another important task.
