    Goals / Remit

    CEPS is among the most authoritative think tanks operating in the European Union. CEPS serves as a leading forum for debate on EU affairs, but its most distinguishing feature lies in its strong in-house research capacity, complemented by an extensive network of partners. CEPS is an independent, not-for-profit institution that provides high-quality research without promoting the interests of any other organisation or company. Goals:
    - To carry out state-of-the-art policy research leading to solutions to European challenges
    - To provide a forum for discussion among all stakeholders in the European policy process
    - To build collaborative networks of researchers, policy-makers, NGO and business representatives across Europe
    - To disseminate our findings and views through a regular flow of publications and public events

    Main EU files targeted

    Brexit, EU Multiannual Financial Framework, European Fund for Strategic Investment, Circular Economy, Cybersecurity, EMU governance, NGEU, Green Deal
