The Centre for European Research (CERGU) is a multidisciplinary European research centre based at the University of Gothenburg. CERGU is financed by three faculties: the School of Business, Economics and Law, the Faculty of Humanities, and the Faculty of Social Sciences. These three faculties mandate CERGU with two main tasks:

To stimulate and encourage high quality, multidisciplinary research on challenges facing Europe, by:

  • Supporting the development of multidisciplinary research Projects
  • Raising the quality of research by nurturing a multidisciplinary environment and context for all kinds of research about Europe at the University of Gothenburg
  • Developing young researchers through international recruitment and support for PhD students and post-docs

To act as a knowledge hub in order to stimulate multidisciplinary and policy-relevant debates on European challenges, by:

  • Arranging multidisciplinary seminars and conferences on important and current European issues
  • Contributing to the greater society with relevant knowledge through the dissemination of research results, public events, social media, joint collaborations, and other outreach activities
  • Supporting research-based multidisciplinary teaching on European issues at the University of Gothenburg

Founded in 1995, CERGU is a vital part of the complete European academic environment at the University of Gothenburg. Together with the Centre for European Studies (CES), CERGU contributes to the University of Gothenburg’s primary goal of being a successful international multidisciplinary research institution. CERGU played a major role in the decision to award the University of Gothenburg the distinction of becoming a Jean Monnet European Centre of Excellence in 1998.
