Our Mission

The European Policy Centre is an independent, not-for-profit think tank dedicated to fostering European integration through analysis and debate, supporting and challenging European decision-makers at all levels to make informed decisions based on sound evidence and analysis, and providing a platform for engaging partners, stakeholders and citizens in EU policymaking and in the debate about the future of Europe.


"The EPC proposals on the reform of economic governance marry ambition and realism: they push the frontier of coordination and “togetherness” whilst taking into account that in Europe, we need to accept to remain in a second-best world. Nonetheless, the EU and the EA would become considerably stronger and better equipped to face an increasingly uncertain future if such proposals were pursued.
Marco Buti
Head of Cabinet for the Commissioner for Economy Paolo Gentiloni
"Over the first 25 years of excellent work by the European Policy Centre, the abbreviation EPC has also come to stand for Enlightening, Participatory, Constructive. Under these guiding stars, I wish you a brilliant future: Ad multos annos."
Reinhard Bütikofer
Member of the European Parliament
"I want to take this opportunity to thank the EPC for its excellent service to the EU in the past 24 years. It's impressive! Thank you very much – we all count on your reports. They are read by politicians all over Europe."
Ana Paula Zacarias
Secretary of State for European Affairs, Portugal
The contribution of the EPC task force to explore the potential of digitalisation on the circular economy has been fundamental in opening new areas of work and identifying possible barriers.
Frans Timmermans
European Commission
"I am particularly grateful to the excellent group of experts that have contributed to EPC publication 'Towards an ambitious, broad, deep and flexible EU-UK partnership?'. Thanks to them, the political, economic and social intricacies of the United Kingdom’s departure from the European Union can be understood more broadly."
Michel Barnier
Chief Brexit negotiator for the EU
"I think the EPC is doing excellent work and I’m honoured to be part of its Strategic Council."
Anthony L. Gardner
Former Ambassador of the United States to the European Union
It’s a pleasure to speak at the European Policy Centre – an organisation which for almost two decades has been at the forefront of discussions on the European Union – leading the debate on issues such as the EU’s place in the world, migration and diversity, and the promotion of economic growth.
Nicola Sturgeon
First Minister of Scotland
For over 20 years, the European Policy Centre has been at the centre of the debate on Europe. Your ideas, your thoughts, sometimes your dreams have helped shape the future of the European Union.
Jean-Claude Juncker
Former President of the European Commission
I applaud the EPC for putting “the future of work” at the heart of the public debate. The digital revolution is one of the defining challenges of our time, with profound effects on our societies, our social systems and our citizens. I’m sure this issue paper will inspire national and European policymakers in their search for concrete solutions.
Joost Korte
Director-General at the European Commission
Enjoyed presenting the new 'better regulation agenda' this afternoon at the European Policy Centre. Great questions from the audience, a cross-section of diplomats, NGOs, think-tanks, officials, journalists – people who really know Brussels inside out.
Frans Timmermans
Vice-President European Commission
Themes in this report go at the heart of the priorities of the Finnish presidency. Social sustainability is key to the many transformations EU is facing during the next decade. For evidence-based policymaking, reports like this are extremely valuable.
Timo Harakka
Finnish Minister of Employment
I rarely have read such good quality, comprehensive and clear publication on Future of Work. I really congratulate the authors of this useful and constructive publication 'Future of Work'.
Nicolas Schmit
Commissioner of Jobs and Social Rights
The European Policy Centre was the natural choice for me to set out my priorities for the new mandate in the field of taxation. Offering incisive analysis, an extensive network and impeccable organisation, the EPC is the key hub for stakeholder engagement in Brussels.
Paolo Gentiloni
Commissioner for Economy
