BEPA’s structure is built around its two core competences – its role as a bridge between Commission policy-makers and academia, think tanks, civil society, churches and communities of conviction and other stakeholders on the one hand, and policy analysis and advice on the other. Together, the Outreach team and the Analysis team strive to provide the President, his Cabinet, the College and Commission Directors-General with the best possible service in policy-making.
The Chief Scientific Adviser team supports the Chief Scientific Adviser to the President in her role.
The Head of BEPA ensures the overall management of the service and is ranked at Director General level. He is supported by the Bureau’s Deputy Head of the service who is ranked as Director. Together they provide the overall management and proper functioning of the Bureau.
The Outreach team of BEPA is the interface between the Bureau and external actors specialising in European affairs and globalisation studies. It is BEPA’s link with debates on European integration and world affairs.
Together with the Outreach team, BEPA’s Analysis team makes up the new structure of the Bureau. The in-house analysts draft policy papers and provide general or specific policy advice in a timely manner on issues of EU policy-making, as requested by the President and the Cabinet.
The Coordination Unit supports BEPA’s management in complying with policy objectives, striving to optimise the use of resources.
