From the preparation and adoption of the euro to the enlargement of the Union and the financial and sovereign crisis. Over the years, he contributed to these key issues through intellectual leadership and rigorous research, helping CEPS to be ranked among the top ten non-US think tank.
Daniel will not only continue his contributions to CEPS, he will also maintain his role as adviser to the ECON Committee of the European Parliament. He held a Fulbright fellowship and was a visiting professor at the University of California at Berkeley in the first half of 2020.

“As Chairman of the Board, I can only express gratitude for the decades of dedication Daniel has shown over the years for CEPS. We are delighted that we can welcome him as one of the CEPS Board members where he will maintain a crucial link between CEPS and the Board, championing CEPS values of independence and transparency.”

“After so many years at CEPS, I am happy to see my work continued by CEPS home-grown talents. Cinzia and Steven bring to the job not only their excellent academic credentials, but also the vision and values which have helped CEPS grow over the years and uphold its role as a leading think tank. They have my full confidence.”
