Since its foundation, the SCEUS has accompanied the development of European integration with its research work, especially – but not exclusively – within the institutional structure of the European Union. Within this broad framework, our research focuses on democracy, the rule of law, the further development of the Economic and Monetary Union, and external relations in general and the enlargement of the Union in particular. Research projects in the areas of the internal market, social union, etc., can be added to that list as well as the research of the numerous doctoral students at the SCEUS. In all these areas, the scientists at the SCEUS have been conducting cutting-edge research across all disciplines represented at the centre, in some cases for many years, which is partly financed by the PLUS, but also to a large extent by third-party funds from Austrian and European funding programmes.
