Focus Areas

European Decision-Making

Through our courses, consultancy and research activities we help public officials to understand both how European decisions are reached and how to participate effectively in EU policy-making processes.

European Policies

We cover the internal market and the main EU policies. Our activities aim to improve the knowledge and skills of policy makers, civil servants and other practitioners who deal with EU policies.

European Public Management

We deal with the question of how European integration and ongoing changes influence the public administrations in the Member States and offer training, consultancy and research on a broad range of topics.

European Union Law

Through our European Centre for Judges and Lawyers in Luxembourg we help you to better understand the nature, content and interpretation of EU law, and identify good practices in its application and enforcement.

Regional Affairs

Our  European Centre for the Regions in Barcelona offers training, consultancy and research on regional affairs with the aim to support regional and local authorities in dealing with the European integration process.
