ERNOP members study philanthropy, which is understood as private, mainly voluntary, contributions to public causes. Research on philanthropy is scattered among different academic disciplines. Research centers studying philanthropy are often multidisciplinary, thereby integrating several academic disciplines when studying philanthropy. ERNOP perceives all these different perspectives as being a strength, and aims to include them all in the study of philanthropy.

In the revised snapshot of pilanthropy research centers in Europe, ERNOP provides an overview of the work of its institutional members, their main academic discipline, their philanthropy related focus and the most recent and key research questions they are working on.
