About the MWoE research scheme
With the MWoE research agenda led by Studio Europa Maastricht, Maastricht University (UM) heeds the urgent need to renew and expand UM’s research agenda on European integration, the EU and Europe more generally; and to do this through innovative multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary research collaborations. This research agenda provides a framework for future inter-faculty and multidisciplinary Europe-related research at Maastricht University and functions as a fundamental academic pillar with a visible outreach and citizen science component.
