CEPS/INSTEAD is a multi-disciplinary public research centre founded in 1978. With a staff of around 140, CEPS/INSTEAD is a major research institution in social sciences in Luxembourg. Its research activities are polarized around three core themes: Population and Employment, Geography and Spatial Planning, and Enterprises and Industrial Organizations. The Department of Geography is composed of 27 geographers who have developed particular expertise in the field of cross-border integration in Europe. Areas of interest include: the functional and institutional dynamics of cross-border metropolitan areas, the role of national borders in differentiating political, economic and cultural systems, and their new importance as interfaces for promoting exchanges, co-operation, and economic competitiveness.
