Europeanization beyond process – Berlin Policy Hub

The “Europeanization beyond process” initiative seeks to bridge the gap between Europeanization discourses in EU member states and EU neigh­boring countries by bringing together policy research organi­za­tions from Eastern Partnership countries with their counter­parts and decision-makers in the EU capitals.

In the framework of the initiative IEP acts as a policy hub in Berlin — a first contact-point, hosting insti­tution and gateway for think tanks from Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine eager to expand their networks with German research insti­tu­tions and relevant policy makers. The policy hub also functions as a mentoring center for capacity devel­opment and transfer of knowledge and supports its Eastern European partner organi­za­tions in success­fully conducting and presenting their research to the German audience and facil­i­tates advocacy visits to Berlin.
