About ECN


The European Consulting Network (ECN) is an international network of consultancies, universities, chambers of commerce, individual experts, and other members who cooperate on projects funded by the European Commission as well as other international and bilateral organisations.

Membership in ECN is open to all participants. Free and subscription options exist.

On the ECN site, you will find the most comprehensive range of consultancy services and grant procurement opportunities funded by the European Commission; its specialised agencies; the European Parliament; the European Delegations, and all other programmes and institutions managed centrally by the EU. We provide daily coverage of over 200 European Union agencies, programmes and institutions.

We are also gradually expanding our range of coverage to include consultancy procurements, recruitments and subcontracting from other organisations, including the World Bank, International Finance Corporation, United Nations Development Programme, European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, African Development Bank and others. 

There is no longer any need to scan multiple sites: our tender notice preferences enables you to receive all tenders in a standard format (e.g. daily email, weekly summary, etc), or to specify your preferences in terms of countries, sectors, functions and donors.

Members also use our innovative cooperation platform to post and view consortium offers, recruitment opportunities and sub-contracting positions. Membership profiles and CVs are created, which enable other members a rapid assessment of consultancy capabilities, references, resources, and consultant skills.

Our social networking applications enable you to keep in touch with your colleagues, sub-contractors and employers; to immediately broadcast news; and to search for and link to colleagues and partners.

ECN offers the most comprehensive online suite of services for EU consulting in the world. Join today.
