Institute of North American
Studies (IEN) Foundation

We are facing a new stage in our story, in which we are paving the way to offer a much closer collaboration with the cultural, business, economic and social spheres of Catalonia and North America in order to continue to play an essential role in encouraging
and improving cultural connections between the two worlds.

Years

The Institute of North American
Studies was created from the
dream of two friends in 1951 as
a private not-for-profit association
which sought to foster cultural
exchange between Catalonia and
the United States of America.
It was established as the Institute
of North American Studies Private
Foundation in 2006.
