Welcome to the web page of the WWU Centre for Europe,

with the Lisbon strategy, the EU has set itself the goal of making Europe one of the most competitive regions of the world. To achieve this goal, we need international and interdisciplinary research in collaborative research projects at European and national level. With the establishment of WWU Centre for Europe in December 2015, the University of Münster is active in Brussels, to support the internationally active WWU researchers in positioning themselves in the EU funding landscape. The goals of the WWU Centre for Europe are the pooling, support, justification and encouragement of all Europe-related activities at the WWU. Find out more about our activities, our members and our current EU-funded projects. You can also have a look at our brochure about EUropean Research at the WWU Münster to explore the various possiblities.


Open Access

After a pilot action in FP7, Open Access was anchored as a general principle in  Horizon 2020. In principle, scientific publications in the context of a project funded by Horizon 2020 must be provided free of charge and publicly accessible online. The University of Münster supports researchers with services around Open Access publishing, including e.g. financial support. More information as well as contact persons for specific questions can be found here.
