Both EU public institutions and market donors may financially support specific research projects on topics mutually agreed with the CDS. In all cases the Centre carries out each research project in a fully independent manner, defining autonomously the methodology of research without any external influence on the final research results. To ensure transparency, the external financial support received by the CDS is displayed on the webpage of each research project. The CDS fully complies with the EUI Guidelines on Ethics and Integrity in Academic Research and the EUI General Principles concerning the Receipt of External Funds. In particular, the EUI Funding  Committee regularly scrutinises any external funding from private donors received by the CDS.
