The Robert Schuman Centre is home to a number of Chairs which contribute to the research and policy outreach of the Centre on topical fields such as European economic and monetary integration and energy.

Named in memory of leading personalities in the respective fields, the Chairs contribute high quality research and inspiring ideas to the lively academic community of the Robert Schuman Centre as well as to the international debate, bridging the gap between academia and practice.


The Robert Schuman Centre welcomes the addition of named chairs that honour individuals who have made a major contribution to Europe
