About Us

The European Public Relations Education and Research Association (EUPRERA) is an independent organization that aims at stimulating and promoting innovative knowledge and practices of strategic communication, organizational communication and Public Relations across Europe. 

Founded in 1959 and previously named “CERP Education & Research,” EUPRERA is a network where academics and professionals attract, convey, disseminate and create innovations in the field. Several cross-national and comparative research and education projects are organized by members and affiliated colleges and universities. In order to spread new methodologies and research results, EUPRERA organizes an annual highly regarded academic Annual Congress. Every year, it is held in collaboration with a selected university or college in Europe.

At the congress, recent research results are presented, based on peer-reviewed papers and panel sessions; PhD students also have the opportunity to gain experience through the PhD Seminar, which precedes the Annual Congress. The congress is a major event to exchange research insights and to start collaborations in this specific field in Europe.
