Corporate Partnerships


CERI corporate partnership provides companies with an expertise based on a rigorous methodology of social sciences and a first-hand knowledge of our scholars’ research terrains all over the world.

Our partners value CERI’s input as a complementary contribution to their own strategic perception of international, regional and country-level developments. By joining our corporate programs, they acknowledge that understanding social and political contexts and trends is essential for a better anticipation of opportunities and risks in order to invest, set up business and establish a lasting presence in the various international markets.

Partners can enjoy interaction with CERI’s activities, including:
- Membership in OMER – the emerging countries observatory specifically tailored for the needs of our corporate partners;
- Country analysis briefings for business executives and company leaders;
- Participation in conferences, workshops or restricted roundtable debates;
- Subscription to the Les Etudes du CERI working papers series and early access to our other publications.

Corporate partners contribute to the development of CERI’s research capacities. They help us preserve the excellence of our scientific work and remain a world-class forum of informed debate on international issues.

Companies willing to joint CERI partnership program and to support us are invited to conclude a corporate patronage convention with Sciences Po
