Team and contact

Eve Reincke


Eve holds a BA in International Business from Concordia International University Estonia. Europe played an important role already in the early days of Eve´s career – right before and after Estonia joined the EU, Eve worked for the Estonian Ministry of Finance to set up systems and procedures for the usage of the EU (Pre)Structural Funds. After that Eve worked with (EU) project management and evaluation as a Project Leader and Partner at an Estonian consultancy. Many of these projects came
from the cultural sector and sparked her interest in cultural cooperation on European and international level (eg. evaluation of Tallinn as the European Capital of Culture 2011). Since 2019 Eve works for the Estonian Embassy in The Hague, covering several domains – from culture, press and media relations to business diplomacy and politics
