About CIEP

In September 2001, the Clingendael International Energy Programme (CIEP) was launched, supported by twelve institutions from the public and private sectors for a project period of four years under the Stichting Fonds Institute Clingendael (SFIC). Since then, CIEP was continued in 2004, 2008, 2012 and again in 2016, each time for four years. The current project period runs from 2017-2020. CIEP is supported by 26 public and private institutions and companies.
