The Centre for Europe of the University of Münster assists researchers from the University of Münster who are engaged in international research to position themselves effectively in the EU funding landscape. The aims of the Centre for Europe are to bring together, support, underpin and provide stimulus to all Europe-related activities of the university. The Brussels office serves as a point of contact and interface for stakeholders and institutions in the area of research, innovation and higher education at the European level. The aim is to enhance the visibility at the European level of the excellent research and teaching offered at the University of Münster. To this end, the office supports networking between researchers from the University of Münster and representatives of education- and research-related institutions of the European Union and other stakeholders based in Brussels. The Centre for Europe also provides information about the latest policy developments relating to higher education, research and innovation as well as about participation in the planning, development and implementation of European research funding programmes.
