The Amsterdam Centre for Contemporary European Studies (ACCESS EUROPE), a joint initiative of the University of Amsterdam (UvA) and VU University Amsterdam (VU), has been designated a Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence by the European Commission. Awarded for a period of three years, this status is conferred on prominent academic centres for research and education on Europe and European integration processes.
The designation provides ACCESS EUROPE with additional financial resources to share knowledge acquired through research with students, practitioners and other interested parties. As a Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence, ACCESS EUROPE will be offering an extended programme of education and knowledge activities, including five summer schools, an annual conference on a key European issue and a range of public sessions.
