CEE Hub4Ideas


What is CEE Hub4Ideas

A virtual digest that serves as a common space for outputs and a multiplier for constructive voices from Central and Eastern European think tanks, research institutions, civil society organisations, and individuals.

Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) has often struggled to achieve the status of a sought-after region in terms of emerging ideas and innovative research. With the war in Ukraine at the region’s doorsteps, now more than ever there is a necessity to amplify the constructive voices and to share the unmatched expertise and experiences. There is high potential for arising new ideas and solutions which can be effectively used for policymaking. Having a Hub where CEE voices are reachable at ease, could boost the region’s image and proliferate constructive and practical initiatives.
