About us

The Club has been founded at the beginning of the 60s, the same time as the Euratom research centre, now the Joint Research Centre (JRC), when the original members, wives of the first Commission employees in Ispra, started to meet and organise a club to socialize and integrate.

The Club today has about 700 members from different countries, linked to the JRC, the European School of Varese and the territory and organizes cultural and recreational activities that promote the integration and socialization.

The Club Europeo is an officially registered association with a statute approved by the General Assembly of its members.
Its registered office is in the C.C.R. of Ispra, Via Esperia, c/o Club House.

Registration to the CTA-CEI

Centro Turistico Acli-Club Europeo Ispra

According to the current regulations of the APS Associations, external activities, trips and trips, with the use of buses, cannot be organized without a regular license (except occasionally and no more than twice a year). After various consultations, an affiliation was made with a national CTA (ACLI Tourist Centre) as it is recognized as carrying out this type of activity in an associative form. In this way, all tax and legal regulations will be respected, guaranteeing members all the required insurance coverage.

To correctly manage according to the law of Legislative Decree 117/2017 and simplify the management of external activities, travel, exhibitions, visits, cultural tourism, excursions, etc., there is the



It will involve managing the activities under the CTAcli as an affiliated and recognized APS.

Members of the Ispra European Club who participate in External Activities must join the new "CTA European Ispra APS Club". This annual card, costing €15.00 for adults and €5.00 for children up to 6 years old, will be used for all mandatory insurance coverage required.

Our external activities (done only for cultural dissemination and socialization), even if always at a loss and with very low costs, produce an income that forces us to comply with the laws that regulate tourist-cultural activities. The legal responsibility is great.

Only in this way will it be possible to keep costs low and the members of the European Club Ispra will, as always, be able to benefit from the organization of a Non-Profit Association and the work of many volunteers.
