European Union Center of Excellence at UC Berkeley
The Institute of Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies and the Institute of European Studies at the University of California, Berkeley are pleased to announce the establishment of a new European Union Center of Excellence at UC Berkeley. A joint effort of these two Institutes, the EU Center is funded for three years with a € 300,000 grant from the European Commission in partnership with these Institutes and is working in cooperation with the School of Public Health, the Institute of Governmental Studies, the Berkeley Roundtable on the International Economy, and the Boalt Hall School of Law. With the creation of this EU Center of Excellence, UC Berkeley will play a vital role in promoting a deeper understanding of the European Union and raise the level of dialogue and discourse on transatlantic relations throughout the State of California.
The EU Center is co-directed by Jeff Pennington, executive director of the Institute of Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies and by Beverly Crawford, associate director of the Institute of European Studies. Ms. Noga Wizansky serves as the Center's assistant director.
