The Institut d’études politiques de Strasbourg (IEP Strasbourg), France, is a “Grande école” located in Strasbourg, France. It was the second IEP, founded on October 9th, 1945, after the IEP Paris (Sciences Po). Since January 1th, 2009, it has been part of the University of Strasbourg, the second largest university in France. Over the years, the IEP Strasbourg has developed a strong European orientation in its curriculum. Up to 800 students are enrolled, one fifth of them being international students. Courses include a wide range of disciplines such as Law, Economics, History, Sociology and Political Science. Partner universities include the University of Saint Andrews, Georgetown University, Boston College and, proudly, Babeş-Bolyai University. The IEP has recently stated that it aims to develop many other partnerships with Asian universities. The Institute conducts a dual-degree program with the Doctoral School of the Faculty of European Studies and has participated in the organization of joint conferences and roundtables.
The Centre for Europe at the University of Warsaw was established in October 1991 as one of the very first institutions of its kind in Poland. The Centre is an autonomous interfaculty institute specializing in European Studies. The Centre for Europe focuses its research and teaching activities on political, economic, legal, as well as cultural and social aspects of European development, within an interdisciplinary framework. The Centre’s main research areas include: the European Union’s position and role in international relations, its security and neighbourhood policies, the financial dimension of integration and the extension of the Euro zone, the EU’s role in international trade, the legitimisation and democratisation of the EU, globalisation and governance in the EU and the development of civil society in times of globalisation, European cultural heritage, and the anthropology of a New Europe. The Centre’s primary objectives are to promote, initiate and support research and education in European Studies; to develop the European and international collaborative research network; and to create a broad forum for the exchange of ideas. The fact that the Centre has been awarded one of the highest marks in the classification of the State Committee for Scientific Research is evidence of its high level of development and prominent position in research ranking. The Center is a traditional partner of the Faculty of European Studies (Erasmus mobilities, conferences, joint publications) and will ensure the participation of a large number of lecturers and researchers in the conference, in order to strengthen the research on regional cooperation in East-Central Europe, from the Polish point of view. Also, the participation of the Center will allow to explain the so-called "Polish model" of regionalization, which Romania and other states of European Union can follow. Moreover, in 2019, the Center for Europe has signed a partnership agreement with the Institute for European Research of the Faculty of European Studies in order to strengthen the relations between the Polish and the Romanian academic environment.
The world’s economy and its international relations are the Institute’s education and research focal points. The Institute’s areas of excellence include: International Law, World Economic and International Business processes, and more specifically, European Union economic policy, and integration. The organizational unit actively participates in the programs of the Faculty of Economics and Business of the University of Debrecen, ranging from the post-graduate diploma course through BSc to MSc training, which offers core, special, and optional subjects. Much of its academic staff is committed to working in Hungarian and English-language education programs. The Institute carries out cross-teaching activities at other faculties of the University as well. Publishing research results is an integral part of the Institute’s activities. The Institute is thoroughly engaged in helping to attract more capital in the city of Debrecen and the county with its expertise. The Institute has been an important research and teaching partner of the Faculty of European Studies in the last five years, with such notable outputs as a teacher exchange program, an international conference and a volume to be published at Nomos.
