The only progressive think tank at European level. FEPS establishes an intellectual crossroad between social democracy and the European project, putting fresh thinking at the core of its action. As a platform for ideas and dialogue, FEPS works in close collaboration with social democratic organisations, and in particular national foundations and think tanks across Europe, to tackle the challenges that Europe faces today. Close to the Party of European Socialists (PES), the S&D Group in the European Parliament, the PES Group in the Committee of the Regions, Young European Socialists and PES women, but nevertheless independent.
FEPS embodies a new way of thinking on the social democratic, socialist and labour scene in Europe.
Our main purpose is to nourish a fresh progressive dialogue through its research, which includes Next Left and Millennial Dialogue programmes. Activities are in person and online are available in different formats. Notably FEPS Progressive Post magazine and the European Progressive Observatory digital platform as well as further publications and events are where you can find our material.

The FEPS is now well established and has been carrying out activities with its members and partners successfully for an extended period now. This has meant that the activity planning of FEPS has advanced extensively and is also much more established. You will see in this activity report the detailed working plan 2010 illustrating the working pillars of FEPS.
