    Goals / Remit

    Founded in Brussels in 1983, the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS) is among the most experienced and 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 partner institutes throughout the world.

    CEPS is an independent, not-for-profit institution that provides high-quality research without promoting the (financial) interests of any other organisation or company.

    Goals:
    To carry out state-of-the-art policy research leading to solutions to the challenges facing Europe

    To achieve high standards of academic excellence and maintain unqualified independence

    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 the whole of Europe

    To disseminate our findings and views through a regular flow of publications and public events

    CEPS carries out its research via its own in-house research programmes and through collaborative research networks involving the active participation of other highly reputable institutes and specialists:

    Research Programmes
    Economic & Social Welfare Policies
    Energy & Climate Change
    EU Neighbourhood, Foreign & Security Policy
