EU flags in Brussels, Belgium

Formed in Januray 2011, the EU Nonproliferation Consortium forms the core of a wider network of European nonproliferation think tanks and research centres which will be closely associated with the activities of the Consortium. The EU Nonproliferation Consortium is managed jointly by SIPRI and three other institutesthe Fondation pour la recherche stratégique in Paris, the Peace Research Institute in Frankfurt (HSFK/ PRIF), and the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) in Londonin close cooperation with the representative of the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy.

This network aims to support EU action to counter proliferation. To that end, the network can also establish cooperation with specialized institutions and research centres in third countries, in particular in those with which the EU is conducting specific non-proliferation dialogues. The Consortium will work through the organization of expert meetings and international conferences, through the development of a dedicated website and through a family of publications.
