The Centre for EU-Russia Studies (CEURUS) at the University of Tartu, Estonia, brings together scholars and experts who share an interest in the evolving relationship between the European Union and the Russian Federation. CEURUS coordinates and sponsors a variety of activities relating to research, teaching and public outreach in the area of EU-Russia relations.

The Centre was established in 2011 in the framework of a research and development programme funded by the University of Tartu. It builds on existing research expertise and study programs at the Johan Skytte Institute of Political Studies as well as other UT faculties.

Sine 2016, CEURUS is a member of the UPTAKE consortium in the field on Russian and East European Studies, together with the Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies (UCRS) at Uppsala University and the Global Europe Centre (GEC) at the University of Kent. The goal of the consortium is to increase research productivity and excellence through a diverse programme of joint activities, including the launch of new academic conference series. The consortium is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 691818 (“Building Research Excellence in Russian and East European Studies at the Universities of Tartu, Uppsala and Kent”).
