Centre for European Studies

IEP launched the new Centre for European Studies, directed by Mr. José Manuel Durão Barroso, former President of the European Commission from 2004 to 2014. ex-Presidente da Comissão Europeia entre 2004 e 2014.       

Mr. José Manuel Durão Barroso gave his Inaugural Lecture at the Universidade Católica Portuguesa on February 26, 2015, at a Ceremony presided by our Rector.

His collaboration is a great honour for us and a tribute to our dear friend Professor Ernâni Lopes, founder of the Institute for European Studies - which has been integrated to IEP, shortily after his death on December 2010.
