January 2021 - Top-level researchers and experts from ten different countries launch the EU-funded project ENGAGE – 'Envisioning a New Governance Architecture for a Global Europe’ – under the umbrella of the European Commission’s prestigious Horizon 2020 research program.
ENGAGE brings together a consortium of nine universities and four think tanks, including Esade Business & Law School (Spain, coordinator), Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (Belgium), Rijksuniversiteit Groningen (The Netherlands), Sabanci University (Turkey), The University of Edinburgh (United Kingdom), Carnegie Europe Foundation (Belgium), International Institute for Strategic Studies (Germany and UK), Institut de Relations Internationales et Stratégiques (France), College of Europe (Natolin) (Poland), Hertie School (Germany), GLOBSEC (Slovakia), Institut Barcelona d’Estudis Internacionals (Spain), and Tampere University (Finland).
ENGAGE, which will run over the course of three and a half years, will advance goals that are aligned with the European Commission’s push to have a stronger and more united European voice in the world. The project will focus on how the EU can effectively and sustainably harness all of its tools in a joined-up external action, with an eye to meeting key strategic challenges and becoming a stronger global actor.
