Institute of Europe, Russian Academy of Sciences, is known abroad as one of the strongest think tanks providing expertise on European integration, security systems, political and economic peculiarities of the continent's countries and regions, Europe's joint cooperation strategies and Russia's role in modern Europe. In 2017, Institute of Europe celebrates 30 years of its establishment. Paying the tribute to this date, IE RAS is launching a new «Talking of Europe» project to promote scientific knowledge. The project is aimed at explaining to the general public how modern Europe works, what developments it is experiencing and what Russian EU studies are concerned with. We talk of Europe in an easy, comprehensible and fascinating way.
