The Centre for European Studies (CES) is a multidisciplinary centre of expertise based at the University of Twente in The Netherlands.

Its purpose is to pool European studies and European research at the university and to serve as a centre for coordination in that field.

At the same time, it is an information point for the public sector, journalists, or companies in need of expertise in the area of European governance. CES has established contacts with numerous other national and international institutes. Researchers connected to the Centre analyse issues of European integration and policy from different academic perspectives, including public administration, economics, law, sociology, and political science. Key areas of interest include European governance and regulation, monetary issues and banking union, EU external relations law and foreign and security policy, the EU in the world, multilevel regulation, EU institutional development, European democracy, European social integration, European health issues and technology & governance.
