The European Association of Cochlear Implant Users a.s.b.l. (EURO-CIU a.s.b.l.) is a non-governmental and non-profit association which was established in Luxembourg in 1995 (RCS F3180). The association consists of 33 national member associations from 25 European countries.
Altogether the EURO-CIU represents almost 150.000 cochlear implant (CI) users across Europe, approximately 60% of whom are adults and 40% children.
In the Association’s recent surveys of members 95% of cochlear implant users state that the implant has improved both their and their families’ quality of life.
The mission of EURO-CIU is to increase access to the gift of hearing provided by cochlear implantation through awareness and research.
