TT - Introducing Think-tanks 3: CEPS

CEPS - Thinking ahead for Europe

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 today. 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...


  •  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 and business representatives across the whole of Europe.
  •  To disseminate our findings and views through a regular flow of publications and public events.
