The Trans European Policy Studies Association (TEPSA) is the first trans-European research network in the field of European affairs. It consists of leading research institutes in the field of European affairs across Europe, with an office in Brussels. TEPSA’s aim is to provide high quality research on European integration based on a ‘Triple A’ approach: Analysis, Assessment and Advice in order to stimulate discussion on policies and political options for Europe. The network was established in 1974 as an international non-profit association under Belgian law. Ever since 1974 it has steadily increased its membership in response to the constant growth of the European Union. Today TEPSA consists of 36 member institutes and associate members located in 33 European countries. TEPSA and its member institutes have engaged in a two-fold approach, providing expertise on EU policies and politics combined with a vast experience in organising and conducting EU-wide research, training and networks.
