Building on our track record of cutting edge research in European Union affairs, our members currently participate in international networks and research groups and use innovative concepts to evaluate key subjects and inform topical debate.
We organise and participate in conferences and workshops related to our research projects in venues around Europe and the world. Our workshops allow our participants to present their initial research data and allow for input from the rest of the project team and other invited participants. Our research outcomes are presented at conferences, invited presentations and public events. Our members regularly present papers at international conferences and by invitation at government and academic institutions, including the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the European External Action Service.
