The Network of Excellence CONNEX ("Connecting Excellence on European Governance") is one of the few projects funded by the European Union within the first call for proposals for priority 7 of the Sixth Framework Programme of Research. It is dedicated to the analysis of efficient and democratic multilevel governance in Europe and will have a 4 years duration (July 2004 - June 2008).


Multilevel governance stands for the high interdependence of political responsibilities executed at regional, national and European level. Efficiency and democratic accountability is needed because it is the very foundation of legitimate governance.


42 partner institutions from 23 European countries and more than 170 scholars cooperate within the network. The consortium is coordinated at the


Mannheim Centre for European Social Research (MZES)


by Beate Kohler-Koch (Network Coordinator) and
Fabrice Larat (Network Manager).

CONNEX seeks to integrate independent fundamental research and mobilise outstanding scholars from different disciplines to deepen our knowledge on European multilevel governance and build a Europe-wide research community which stands for scientific excellence. It also aims to contribute to the public debate on the future of European governance. CONNEX is closely linked to the Integrated Project NEWGOV - New Modes of Governance.
