For example, many of the large-scale collaborative research projects undertaken by CEPR require close interaction and collaboration with university departments across Europe; joint workshops, conferences, training programmes and a range of dissemination activities are organised and undertaken cooperatively. As a result of these types of project-based initiatives, CEPR has developed and maintained a significant number of ‘network-based’ activities within its wider ‘virtual’ network of academics, which involve universities across the world.
CEPR works closely with a number of public and private sector organisations, including European central banks, corporate bodies and government departments and the European Commission, in staging joint workshops, seminars and other discussion and dissemination-based activities. For example, CEPR manages the Euro Area Business Cycle Network (EABCN), a forum linking academic researchers and researchers in central banks and other policy institutions involved in the empirical analysis of the euro area business cycle.
CEPR also supports the UN Global Compact and its principles. To find out more, please visit the UN Global Compact's webpage.
