The Integrated Programme in European Policy Studies (IPEPS)
The Integrated Programme in European Policy Studies (IPEPS) complemented master’s degree programmes in Universities across Europe. It provided practical content and policy-oriented training, drawing from CEPS’ extensive experience as a prominent European think tank. It aimed to promote critical thinking and in-depth learning of real-life EU policy issues. The programme offered a comprehensive coverage of EU policy areas: EU macroeconomic governance, Regulation and the economics of financial markets, Energy Union and climate change, EU single market and the four freedoms, decision-making across EU policies.
This project ended in 2018 with the IPEPS Final Conference.
The IPEPS project received funding from Erasmus+ – Jean Monnet – support to Institutions

Young Thinkers for Europe: CEPS Ideas Lab
The Young Thinkers initiative took place during the CEPS Ideas Lab event in 2017 and 2016.

It is an innovative platform promoting the exchange of views on key policy issues facing Europe. All sessions of the Ideas Lab were open to the ‘Young Thinkers’ participants. Special sessions discussing EU challenges from different levels and angles were also organised.
