The Amsterdam Centre for European Studies aims to become a world-leading interdisciplinary centre of excellence in research, education and public debate on contemporary Europe, the European Union, and its member states.
We invite you to join us for drinks on the occasion of the establishment of our centre, and to learn about our ambitions, recent successes such as a number of Horizon2020 grants, and your opportunities to become involved.
ACES has been designated a Research Priority Area by the UvA Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences (FMG) for a five-year period (2018-2022). At the invitation of the College van Bestuur, ACES is currently developing a Strategic Plan to become a University Research Priority Area. It has also been designated a Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence by the European Commission’s Erasmus+ Programme (2018-2021).
As an UvA-wide Centre and prospective University Research Priority Area, ACES is a cooperation between the Faculties of Social and Behavioural Sciences, Economics and Business (FEB), Law (FdR) and Humanities (FGw).
ACES builds on the work of the UvA-VU platform ACCESS EUROPE (the Amsterdam Centre for Contemporary European Studies), which was established in 2014.
