About the EUCE at York

The European Union Centre of Excellence (EUCE) was established at York University in the Fall of 2009 with the receipt of a grant from the European Commission in Brussels.

Housed at York’s Canadian Centre for German and European Studies, the EUCE at York has as its twin aims the integration of York University’s existing research, teaching, outreach, and networking activities on Europe and the EU and the introduction and facilitation of new activities, at York and in the wider region, promoting knowledge and understanding of the EU and the importance of the EU-Canada relationship.

During the grant period of 2009-2012, the EUCE at York will coordinate a variety of activities focused on aspects of EU policy and EU-Canada relations. Among the planned activities are a number of academic research conferences, workshops and seminars related to issues salient to EU-Canada matters in the areas of law and business as well as outreach activities intended to engage the broader public (including high school students).
