Europe occupies an important place on the research and teaching agenda of The Australian National University. As part of an international alliance of research Universities the ANU has close links with a number of the leading Universities in Europe and many of its individual scholars study Europe, often working in collaboration with those at European universities.
The ANU Centre for European Studies (ANUCES) has been established to underscore the University-wide commitment to European studies.
ANUCES is an initiative involving six ANU Colleges (Arts and Social Sciences, Law, Business and Economics, Asia and the Pacific and Medicine, Biology and Environment, Engineering & Computer Science). It will focus the talents of hundreds of researchers, teachers and students working on Europe on a single site. It will create synergies, promote interdisciplinary dialogue, and generate collaborative research projects at home and abroad.
It is the hub for Europe at ANU and is a special intitative of the European Commission and the ANU.
The ANU Centre for European Studies takes over the role formerly played by the National Europe Centre.
Between 2001 and 2009 the NEC was funded jointly by the ANU and the European Commission. This funding to promote European Union studies and dialogue with Europe has recently been renewed and an exciting program of activities and research initiatives in partnership with the European Commission will be brought under the umbrella of the ANU Centre for Europe Studies.
We are determined to build on past successes but the ANU Centre for European Studies at Australia’s leading University will also open a new page. Join with us in writing it.
