Founded in Brussels in 1983, CEPS (Centre for European Policy Studies) is a leading think tank and forum for debate on EU affairs, which has been consistently ranked among the top 10 world’s best think tanks. CEPS’ distinguishing features include its strong in-house research capacity and an extensive international network of partner institutes. CEPS’ funding comes from a variety of sources, mainly research grants, public procurement, but also from membership and conference fees.
CEPS relies on a broad and stable membership base to support its mission. Members include both private and public sectors representatives, individuals and organisations. Joining CEPS’ membership gives access to informed and stimulating policy analysis and to be part of a network bringing together key stakeholders working on European affairs. CEPS offers various levels of membership, including the possibility to participate in task forces. As independence is a fundamental value of CEPS, the Centre declines to accept any donation that would alter its commitment to complete research independence and to set its own research priorities.
