The Salzburg Centre of European Union Studies (SCEUS) is an enterprise geared towards research as much as towards education of a new generation of academics and was even designated a Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence in 2008 and 2023.

SCEUS in its research tackles questions of the institutional set-up and the economic governance of the European Union, as well as broader social aspects of European integration and the role of the European Union as global actor. An important objective of SCEUS is to link research and teaching in several ways: The University of Salzburg has launched a new Master Programme in October 2005 titled “European Union Studies. It is mainly concerned with law, economics and political science and flanked by sociology, history and communication studies. Beginning in 2008, the University has also established a three years Doctoral Programme in European Union Studies, which is financed by the Swiss Humer foundation. The Master as well as the Doctoral Programme profit from a Fellowship Programme conceived to invite outstanding scholars from other international institutions to spend research time at SCEUS.
