Hellenic Centre for European Studies (EKEM)

The Hellenic Centre for European Studies (ΕΚΕΜ) was founded in 1988. EKEM is an entity established under private law, supervised by the Hellenic Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The Centre focuses on conducting scientific research on a series of European issues providing Greek decision-makers with accurate analysis and policy proposals. It serves both as an advisory body to the Hellenic Ministry of Foreign Affairs and a think-tank, in an effort to generate innovative ideas for a coherent European policy in Athens.

At the same time, ΕΚΕΜ is charged with the task of informing the academic, business and political community on matters concerning the activities and actions of the European Union, while also raising public awareness on matters of European integration.

The Centre has additionally assumed a leading role in human capital development, by implementing a series of lifelong learning initiatives on European governance issues. A seven-member Executive Board presides over the Centre while a ten-member Scientific Board supervises its research activities.
