Centre for European Research in Maastricht (CERiM)
Since December 2014, the Maastricht Centre for European Law is part of an interfaculty collaboration: the Centre for European Research in Maastricht (CERiM). CERiM is an interdisciplinary research venue creating synergies and stimulating joint projects and events in the fields of European law, governance, and their respective history. It brings together researchers from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASoS) and the Faculty of Law (FL) of Maastricht University.
MCEL closely collaborates with the Maastricht European Centre on Privacy and Cybersecurity (ECPC)
ECPC offers a platform for research focused on legal issues related to personal data protection and cybersecurity. ECPC has a strong European and international outlook, and conducts education and training closely intertwined with the Centre’s research. ECPC is composed of an interdisciplinary group of researchers active in areas of fundamental rights, data privacy, transparency and confidentiality, IT, data security. A number of MCEL members participate in the activities of ECPC.

The scholars of the Centre participate in the Ius Commune Research School and the School of Human Rights Research, both of which are inter-university research consortia of which Maastricht University is a partner. The research of the Centre is disseminated through the usual channels for publications, and also by means of the Maastricht Working Papers in Law.
Benefitting from the fact that other scholars in the field of European integration are located in Maastricht, the Centre works in (close) collaboration with scholars based in the Political Science department of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASoS) and in the European Institute of Public Administration (EIPA).
