Consolidating and expanding our global research network, we will promote the interdisciplinary and creative studies on each European nation-state, the European Union (EU), European integration, and Europe-Japan relations. For example, we will participate in a variety of international joint research projects, funded by the EU, such as Horizon 2020. Waseda University has recently joined in Council for European Studies (CES), as one of the world-wide academic consortium member institutions and as the only Japanese institution as of 27th February 2015. We aim for a proactive utilization of CES.
