Funding of the "Europe Direct at the University of Luxembourg" project (2021-2025)


On Monday 26 February 2024, in Belval, the Rector of the University of Luxembourg, Prof. Dr Jens Kreisel, and the Representative of the European Commission in Luxembourg, Anne Calteux, will sign the Agreement on the funding for 2024 of the "Europe Direct at the University of Luxembourg" project (ED-UNILU), the result of a competitive public history call co-funded by the European Commission for the period 2021-2025.

ED-UNILU is geared towards a broad audience, with the aim of informing students, researchers, teachers and the general public about issues related to the European Union’s history and current affairs, as well as reflecting on potential future challenges. In 2023, in cooperation with various partners – especially the European Commission Representation and the Liaison Office of the European Parliament in Luxembourg, the European Citizens’ Initiative, the Committee of the Regions, the European Economic and Social Committee, and the network of Europe Direct centres in Luxembourg and the Greater Region –, it will organise a number of debates (including Citizens’ Dialogues), seminars, discussions and exhibitions, and will offer a wide range of information about the history of European integration, the EU’s principles and values, the EU institutions and the workings and policies of a united Europe.

Based in the Luxembourg Learning Centre (LLC) on Belval Campus, Europe Direct University of Luxembourg is coordinated by the Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C2DH) – the University’s third interdisciplinary research centre, which focuses on high-quality research, analysis and public dissemination in the field of contemporary Luxembourgish and European history. Europe Direct University of Luxembourg is managed by Dr Elena Danescu, a Research Scientist at the C2DH, and Anne Marie Ruzdak is responsible for the ED-UNILU desk at the LLC.
