The Canada-Europe Transatlantic Dialogue (CETD) brings together scholars and partner organizations to promote research on relations between Canada and Europe (including the European Union), and on policy challenges of common concern to Europe and Canada. We foster Canada-wide and trans-Atlantic research networks as well as the dissemination of research findings to the Canadian policy community and to the public at large. The aim is to enhance the quality of public discourse and encourage research-based assessments of diverse responses to pressing policy problems. This project is supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada under the Strategic Knowledge Cluster Program (2008-2015), as well as by participating universities, particularly Carleton University in Ottawa, where the project is housed at the Centre for European Studies (EU Centre of Excellence). CETD supports a searchable database of experts on Europe, EUCAnet.
