"They have the on-the-ground intelligence and the know-how that is indispensable to an effective policy-impact event...

The Warwick Brussels Office hosted an event I organised together with a University of Southampton colleague, Dr Sara Benedi Lahuerta. The seminar aimed to create the space to share our research, facilitate conversations with various stakeholders, and gain feedback on a number of policy proposals we made in the context of our project Rethinking EU Equality Law.

The event was successful and very well attended, and I cannot praise enough the organisational and networking assistance we got from the Brussels Office and the team based at Warwick.

The Brussels Office not only put in a lot of effort to ensure the event ran smoothly on the day, they also took the time to map out relevant audiences to more effectively promote the event among them in the preceding weeks. They even helped us liaise with a local journalist to create video record of the event. I highly recommend the Warwick Brussels Office for events that aim to engage with EU policy makers and civil society organizations.

"The Brussels office and European Engagement Team at Warwick provided expertise and fantastic support which is essential in order to reach key stakeholders in Brussels and organisations with representation across the EU...
 
Warwick’s representative in Brussels organised a great programme of ‘one-to-one’ meetings with senior Commission officials and NGOs for me. Over two days, I met Cabinet members from the Research & Innovation and Education Directorates General (DGs) and senior officials from DGs Home and Growth and from the Commission’s Digital Economy and Skills Unit. I also met experts from NGOs and business representatives.
As a result, I have developed a much stronger network of contacts in Brussels.

"The Brussels Office is a highly valuable unit at Warwick University...

I would like to express my deep gratitude to Warwick’s Brussels Office for their professionalism, knowledge and engagement of key audiences related to communication of findings and key research related to my European Research Council Project “Diasporas and Contested Sovereignty.”

"It was a great way to publicise our research findings...

My Policy Seminar at Warwick’s Brussels Office entitled “Trade and Sustainable Development Chapters in EU Trade Agreements: Can current limitations be overcome?” was a great opportunity to present the findings of my ESRC research current research project on this topic.

The combination of my own research contacts and the excellent publicity work of the Brussels Office meant we had a full room of European Commission, European Parliament, business, trade union and civil society representatives to hear our findings."

Dr James Harrison, School of Law
"Although Britain’s future relationship with Europe remains unclear, the Brussels office is essential for anyone looking to engage in an impactful way with research stakeholders from across the EU...

The interdisciplinary PAIS and Psychology seminar provided a great forum to discuss my nascent research concerning the cultural and cognitive politics of safe standing in British football grounds. Because of where the Brussels office is located, the event was able to attract practitioners and policymakers from across Europe who were then able to feed in to my work and provide a range of different insights."
