About EURECO – University of Copenhagen

English > About EURECO


EURECO (European Research at the University of Copenhagen) is a research cooperative between the Faculty of Social Sciences, the Faculty of Law, and the Faculty of Humanities. EURECO's aim is to generate cutting edge research on the EU with an international impact.

There are two primary goals with EURECO. The first goal is to strengthen the interdisciplinary study of Europe at University of Copenhagen. This is done by awarding minor grants to interfaculty activities and projects. The second goal is to convey knowledge retrieved from research on the topic of Europe to the general public. Therefore, EURECO presents the EURECO Distinguished Lecture Series every year and organizes a number of other public events.

The formal organization of EURECO is similar to an umbrella structure with participation of either one or more research centers from the three faculties. The principle management is handled by the Steering Committee, while EURECO’s Academic Board/Coordination group is responsible for the everyday coordination of activities (including the EURECO Distinguished Lecture Series) and awarding smaller EURECO grants.

The EURECO Secretariat is located at the Department of Political Science and the administrative tasks are handled by EURECO’s research coordinator.
