Looking back & ahead: 15 years of IES

On Friday 29 September the IES celebrated its 15th anniversary. Our institute started off as an initiative by our former President Prof. Dr. Em. Bart De Schutter with a handful of people involved. Today, we are an established player in the area of European studies, involved in dozens of prestigious research projects and with 121 people directly associated.

Our 15th anniversary was a moment for us to look back on our past development and achievements, but also very much to look forward to the exciting projects and challenges ahead, e.g. the structural collaboration with Bruges based UNU-CRIS, as well as the launch of the very first Korea Chair in Europe in October 2017!
