    Goals / Remit

    EU Focus Group is the leading Brussels-based one-stop shop consultancy where advocacy, legal, socio-economic, sustainability & communication reinforce one another. It ideally responds to the increasingly complex EU societal & political environment. The Quintuple Helix Approach is the EU Focus Group-specific working model. We create concrete commercial value for our clients by shaping opportunities in the EU political agenda & by facilitating market access of products and services through regulatory advocacy.

    It is specialised in the management of dossiers linked to chemicals in the broad sense: industrial, agro, biocides, additives and food & health/environment.

    EU Focus Group operates in the whole EMEA with, for instance, experienced partners in Brussels, Berlin, London, The Hague, Warsaw, Vienna, Budapest, Lisbon, Athens, Sofia, Vilnius, Zagreb, Istanbul, Abu Dhabi & Casablanca.
