The Institute for Structural Policy, IREAS, is a nonprofit organization, formed as a project based platform of academic and policy experts. IREAS was established in 2001 with the aim of initiating and coordinating the cooperation of experts and institutions in research and its practical application into EU policies, particularly environmental and structural policies. IREAS is aimed at interdisciplinary work based on the previous research experience of its associates from various universities (University of Economics in Prague, Charles University, Czech Technical University in Prague, Czech University of Life Sciences or Jan Evangelista Purkyně University in Ústí nad Labem). IREAS is characterized by dynamic and flexible teams of experts from different universities and other academic institutions, policy experts, from public administration and private enterprises.
IREAS's expert studies and project outputs deal with various social issues primarily from the economic, political and environmental perspective. Water and waste management, agriculture and nature conservation etc. are among the areas of research and education. IREAS also has a strong background in designing and organizing educational programs.
