EU Liaison Office in Brussels
Established in: 2009
The EU Liaison Office acts as a service provider for research staff from Freie Universität Berlin and a point of contact and interface for stakeholders and institutions in the area of research and innovation at the European level. Its aim is to enhance the visibility, at the European level, of the excellent research carried out at Freie Universität Berlin and the individuals behind it.
The office's main task is therefore to publicise research results, core research areas and priorities of researchers at Freie Universität Berlin on a European level. To this end, the office supports networking between researchers from Freie Universität and representatives of research-related institutions of the European Union and other bodies based in Brussels. It keeps researchers informed about the latest policy developments relating to research and innovation and encourages them to become involved in the planning, development and implementation of European research funding programmes.
