Warning! As of 20 September 2021, the EU lobby register has changed format. Temporarily, the register is no longer providing daily data updates of all lobby data which means that the figures on LobbyFacts cannot currently be kept up-to-date. If, for example, you see a company, trade association, or lobby consultancy with "no figure available" for EU lobby costs, open the data card, and click the link to the EU lobby register where you will find the updated registration including EU lobby costs declaration. Regretably, under the lobby register format, NGOs and think tanks are no longer required to provide a figure for EU lobby costs. We will update LobbyFacts with the new data as soon as possible.

Goals / Remit

CEPS is among the most authoritative think tanks operating in the European Union. CEPS serves as a leading forum for debate on EU affairs, but its most distinguishing feature lies in its strong in-house research capacity, complemented by an extensive network of partners. CEPS is an independent, not-for-profit institution that provides high-quality research without promoting the interests of any other organisation or company. Goals:
- To carry out state-of-the-art policy research leading to solutions to European challenges
- To provide a forum for discussion among all stakeholders in the European policy process
- To build collaborative networks of researchers, policy-makers, NGO and business representatives across Europe
- To disseminate our findings and views through a regular flow of publications and public events
