In 2012, the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to the European Union. At the end of 2017, the Normandy Region and the European Parliament signed a partnership agreement in which the European Parliament supports the Normandy for Peace initiative and its annual forum, and the Region contributes to the development of the "My House of European History" platform developped by the European Parliament.

The mission of the EPRS is to empower with knowledge. As the in-house think tank of the European Parliament, it provides Members and citizens with independent and authoritative research on all EU policy areas. As part of its cooperation with the Normandy World Peace Forum, EPRS publishes the annual EU Peace and Security Outlook and the Normandy Index, which assesses threats to peace and security in 136 countries. It also supports the Forum with the provision of an annual thematic study.
