The European Centre for Climate, Energy and Resource Security (EUCERS) was established in the Department of War Studies at King’s College London in October 2010 and is focused on promoting an understanding of how our use of energy and resources affects international relations.
Since its creation, the centre has been committed to producing policy-relevant research through its Strategy Paper publication series, making incisive contributions to scholarly debate by organising a regular series of quarterly roundtables, and providing outstanding research-led opportunities for professionals and students from around the world in the form of training seminars and academic scholarships.
Since 2014, EUCERS has been consistently ranked among the best energy and resource policy think tanks worldwide by The Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program (TTCSP) at the University of Pennsylvania.
Research and dialogue are at the heart of the Centre’s activities. With its expertise in strategic studies, international relations and energy policy, EUCERS strives to add academic rigour to debates in government and business, and inform global policymakers. The centre’s members and associated scholars produce widely read publications that explore the central energy and climate issues of our time. Our publications span a wide range of topics and are intended to guide policy makers and energy professionals in their decision-making while the regular events offer a neutral platform for scholars, policymakers, industry, the broader public and the media to openly exchange views and perspectives.
