The Centre for Eurasian and Russian Studies (CEURUS), located at the University of Tartu, Estonia, brings together scholars and experts who share an interest in the past, present and future of the Eurasian space, with a particular emphasis on contemporary Russia. The Centre’s flagship event is the Annual Tartu Conference on Russian and East European Studies. In addition, CEURUS coordinates and sponsors a variety of activities relating to research, teaching, and public outreach. 

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 institutes and  faculties. Since 2016, its activities have been supported by a number of external grants, notably the UPTAKE consortium project funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research programme.
