The Intelligence College in Europe has been founded in Paris on March 5th 2019 in the presence of the European intelligence community. It aims at improving connectivity and visibility of intelligence in Europe.

European partners have launched the Intelligence College in Europe as a platform bringing together professionals from the intelligence community and decision-makers to debate matters of common interest. It is based on the principles of openness, voluntariness and collegiality.

The Intelligence College in Europe is an initiative carried by European partner states. By offering activities aimed at connecting knowledge and stakeholders as well as intelligence and security services it enhances the security of Europeans.


The Intelligence College in Europe is a tool for dialogue between the European intelligence community, decision-makers and academics to stimulate strategic thinking, enhance mutual knowledge, and develop a common European intelligence culture.

Our activities aim at: 

  • raising awareness on intelligence issues on the level of decision-makers;
  • fostering better mutual understanding on matters of intelligence and European policy-making;
  • stimulating European strategic thinking for intelligence officers, in partnership with European universities and think tanks.
