Centre for European Policy Studies
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. CEPS' funding is obtained from a variety of sources, including membership fees, project research, foundation grants, conferences fees, publication sales and an annual grant from the European Commission. Its principal goals are: 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. The Energy, Climate Change & Sustainable Development Programme is one of several research programmes including Economic & Social Welfare Policies, EU Neighbourhood, Foreign & Security Policy, Financial Markets & Institutions, Justice & Home Affairs, Politics & European Institutions, Regulatory Policy and Trade Developments & Agricultural Policy.
