The OSCE Network of Think Tanks and Academic Institutions is founded by more than a dozen research institutions during the OSCE Security Days on 18 June 2013. Its creation was preceded by in-depth discussions between the founders, delegations of participating States and OSCE institutions. The network was inspired by a proposal made by OSCE Secretary General Lamberto Zannier in his inaugural speech in July 2011.
The inauguration session took place on 18 June 2013 at Vienna Hofburg. For more information, please follow the link.
