The Centre for Economic Policy Research, founded in 1983, is a network of over 750 researchers based mainly in universities throughout Europe, who collaborate through the Centre in research and its dissemination. The Centre's goal is to promote research excellence and policy relevance in European economics. CEPR Research Fellows and Affiliates are based in over 237 different institutions in 28 countries (90% in the EU).

CEPR has made key contributions to a wide range of European and global policy issues for over two decades.
