Project ELEVATED (European integration, rule of Law, citizen Engagement and common Values Amplified by Thought leadership, Exchanges and Debate) is a 4-year Framework Operating Grant sponsored by the European Commission under the Programme of CERV (Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values). The project start and first-year operating grant was in January 2021.

In line with the EPC’s mission and the CERV Programme priorities, ELEVATED will help develop Europe’s public space on values, policies and citizens’ rights and empower and engage citizens to take part actively in the debate on the EU’s future, achieved through a number of activities and themes, including:

• Conference on the Future of Europe
• Trans-nationalisation of EU policy debates beyond the Brussels bubble through strengthened think tank cooperation and
• Explaining the EU and its functioning to the broader public
• Defending democratic and fundamental rights covering rule of law & fundamental values, disinformation and citizens’ rights in
terms of free movement, as well as migration/asylum debates.
• Promoting welfare and social inclusion post-COVID19 covering a fair, sustainable and resilient recovery, a stronger Social Europe
and the EU’s demographic challenges.
• Empowering youth movements and citizens in environment/climate action, also covering just transition to climate neutrality.
