EU Centre at RMIT
The EU Centre at RMIT in Melbourne builds on its success of the last four years with a focus on governance and the Single Market, developing stronger science, technology, business and governmental partnerships and comparative regional policy.
The European Union (EU) Centre at RMIT University was established in January 2010 to promote a better understanding of the EU and EU-Australia relations. The Centre provides a focal point for teaching, research and outreach activities with the EU, Australia and the Asia Pacific Region. It acts as an advocate for the EU in the region and facilitates the dissemination of information and knowledge from academia to industry and the community at large. The European Union Centre at RMIT is funded through a grant from the European Union and RMIT University.
January 2013- RMIT in partnership with EU universities
As part of a consortium of universities in the Netherlands, Slovenia, the United Kingdom, Denmark and Finland, the RMIT University in Melbourne has been awarded a share in over €4 million under the Marie Curie Actions programme of FP7. The Architecture, Design and Art Practice Training research (ADAPT-r ITN) aims to significantly increase European research capacity through a unique and ground-breaking research model.
Fully funded by the EU, implementation of the ADAPT-r ITN will result in 32 Fellowships, 8 training conferences, a major research conference, a major exhibition, three key books, and a web site providing public access to research and events.
