ACES is an interdisciplinary centre of excellence on contemporary Europe, the European Union, and its member states. Its research activities are organised in five Research Themes. In Interdisciplinary Research Projects, ACES affiliates address major societal challenges in a European context and urgent issues concerning the dynamics and direction of contemporary Europe.

ACES research is organised in five Theme Groups. Through these Theme Groups, ACES affiliates connect, organise events and apply for grants. ACES supports its affiliates with various funding opportunities for conducting research and attending conferences, and welcomes external PhD candidates.

ACES also directly supports interdisciplinary research projects. At this moment, the first batch of such projects are coming to a conclusion, and three new project have been selected. You can find an overview of the Key Publications here.
