Associated partners

The EPS Programme has a large network of Associated Partners that constitute a valuable platform both in the academic as well as professional sense (in total there are 25 APs). Among them, seven institutions play a special role: Europaeum (Oxford, United Kingdom), TEPSA (Brussels, Belgium), International Cultural Centre (Krakow, Poland), together with Václav Havel related organizations (Václav Havel Library and Fórum 2000) and the Institute of International Relations Prague.


Europaeum was founded in 1992 at Oxford as an association of European universities with a mission to: promote excellence in academic research and teaching collaboration between Europaeum Partners; act as an open academic network linking Europaeum Partners and other bodies in the joint pursuit of study; serve as a resource for the general support and promotion of European studies. All EPS Consortium members are also members of this prestigious association. As an Associate Partner, Europaeum offers EPS students the possibility to participate in the Oxford Spring School, an outstanding academic event where students will be exposed to high-level methods of academic debate and will also attend lectures by top experts.
