Conference “EU Studies in the US: Cultivating Transatlantic Understanding for 20 Years”


From the Jean Monnet Network


In cooperation with the European Commission Directorate General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture‘s celebration of thirty years of the Jean Monnet Actions under Erasmus+, the European Studies Center at the University of Pittsburgh, the European Union Studies Association (EUSA), and partner European Union Centers across the United States invite you to celebrate twenty years of European Union support for EU studies in the U.S. From the creation of the European Union Centers of Excellence Program in 1998 to the expansion of Jean Monnet Actions around the world, EU support for the study of European integration and the European project has impacted thousands of students at scores of universities throughout the United States. Join us for the afternoon to network and learn more about the accomplishments of this program in fostering transatlantic dialogue and cooperation.
