Comparative Study of Electoral Systems (CSES) is a collaborative program of research among election study teams from around the world. Participating countries include a common module of survey questions in their post-election studies. The resulting data are then merged into a single, free, public dataset for use in comparative study and cross-level analysis. The CSES survey module was implemented in Estonia for the first time in 2011. 

European Elections Studies (EES) focus on electoral participation and voting behaviour in European Parliament elections. Commanced in 1979, the EES now covers all 27 member states. Research on the 2009 European Parliament elections was carried out in the framework of the PIREDEU project supported from the EU’s 7th framework program. Estonia participated in both the 2004 and the 2009 round of the EES.

The True European Voter is a Europe-wide project supported from  the COST program. Τhe main objective of the project is to increase the material preconditions and the scholarly competence for analyzing variations in the effectiveness of electoral democracy in Europe. The project will result in a unique dataset that merges pre-existing
election studies across Europe, thus allowing for comparative analysis of voting behavior in European democracies throughout the entire post-war period.  Estonia joined the COST Action in 2010.

Several ENES Steering committee members are members of the European Elections Studies Association and the Consortium for European Research with Election Studies (CERES).
