In France this is called GIE (Groupement d'Intérêt Economique). EEIG
stands for European Economic Interest Group.

In France it's easy to create. I think a european one would be a nice
solution, as it would include both firms and individuals and be using
"european laws".

In which country is it easier to create it ?
