Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence in Trade & Environment

Funded under the European Union Erasmus Plus Program, the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence in Trade & Environment gathers leading academics from across The University of Adelaide with expertise in European Studies, including international trade, environment, business, entrepreneurship, and international relations to create a focal point of competence and knowledge on the European Union in the context of trade and environment. 

This innovative centre leverages existing expertise, activities, and networks across the institution to conduct cutting-edge research that seeks to understand and inform the development of environmentally friendly trade and investment policy across the European Union and Asia Pacific. The Centre’s trans-disciplinary approach enables coverage of a wide variety of regulatory issues related to trade and environment and development of research resources and capabilities with broad relevance and application across the institution and beyond campus.  Specific objectives include:

  • Promoting research excellence in the field of EU studies
  • Fostering dialogue between the academic world and society
  • Generating knowledge and insights in support of EU policymaking and strengthening the role of the EU within a globalised world
  • Reaching out to a wider public and spreading knowledge about the EU to wider society through the implementation of a suite of coherent and strategic research and outreach activities
