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.
