Robert Schuman Centre

We produce research on the major challenges facing Europe and the World

Read more about us

From energy regulation to migration, from media pluralism to banking and finance: our nine research programmes address the key questions facing the European Union and its global role through both basic and policy-oriented research.

We host 50 funded research projects, including four funded by the European Research Council, that span a wide range of topics.

The results of our research often become policy output in the form of publications and public events, where academics and policy-makers exchange knowledge and build solutions to face the challenges of our time.
