The Centre for Research on the European Matrix (CRonEM) is a new multidisciplinary research centre housed in the Department of Poltics at the University of Surrey.

At CRonEM, we research European integration as a matrix of overlapping layers of governance, institutions and processes that shape how people of this continent live their lives and are governed, as well as how Europe engages the rest of the world. We understand the EU as a core part of this matrix, but not as a synonym for it.

CRonEM is also the host of the INOTLES Centre for European Studies, supporting activities encouraging innovative pedagogic approaches in the field.

CRonEM organises a series of research seminars and other events aimed at outreach beyond academia, particularly in the Surrey region. We also welcome proposals from visiting scholars with research interests that reflect our research agenda.
