Membership

Become part of our dynamic community of experts, policymakers and stakeholders

CEPS offers various types of annual membership to corporate organisations, European and national institutions, as well as individuals.

Members join CEPS to become part of a dynamic community of experts, policymakers and stakeholders. This community engages in debates and research, hosted by our in-house expertise, so that we are able to provide valuable insights and different perspectives on current and future policy challenges.

As the only think tank in Europe covering nearly all EU policy areas, CEPS is in a unique position to provide a 360-degree viewpoint on any policy proposal, and we are also able to identify potential synergies and cross-cutting implications. This is much appreciated by all our members.

Our members receive a steady flow of authoritative studies, insights and invitations to a wide range of prestigious events focusing on the European Union and its place in the world.

With the continued support of our members, CEPS is thus better placed to conduct more high quality, independent research on policy developments in the EU and beyond.
