    Goals / Remit

    The Westerwelle Foundation for International Understanding is a non-profit organization based in Berlin, Germany. The foundation was established in 2013 by Dr. Guido Westerwelle, former German Minister for Foreign Affairs, and Ralph Dommermuth, CEO and Founder of United Internet AG.

    We regard entrepreneurship as key to opening up opportunities for people in developing & future markets. Based on this conviction we strive to help local entrepreneurs transform great ideas into sustainable businesses.

    To do so we establish arenas for new ideas, create venues for cooperation and innovation, present access to national and international programs and provide mentoring, support and advice.

    The list below only covers meetings held since November 2014 with commissioners, their cabinet members or directors-general at the European Commission; other lobby meetings with lower-level staff may have taken place, but the European Commission doesn't proactively publish information about these meetings. For more information about which commissioner is responsible for which portfolio, check out this link: https://commissioners.ec.europa.eu/index_en All information below comes from European Commission web pages.

    1 July 2024: We have noted that some meetings are appearing in duplicate, ie. some meetings seem to be listed twice. This seems to be because the Commission changes some element of a meeting data after the meeting has first been listed, which causes LobbyFacts to register it as a new meeting. We are investigating further.
