About Us

Building upon Warwick’s strong history of working in Europe, we are committed to taking an active role in European higher education, research and innovation collaboration. In addition to our partnerships across Europe, our staff and students from European countries already contribute to the excellence of our research, teaching, learning and to cultural diversity on our campus.

“Europe-wide research and teaching collaboration has helped transform the lives not just of our students and researchers, it has underpinned jobs, and spurred innovation and advances in health, manufacturing, culture and so much more. Politicians in and out of office in every country in Europe are still deliberating how the UK can still be part of that in future but we can’t afford simply to wait for that to be fully resolved. We chose to act now not just to show our commitment to work together in future but to begin work on a range of activities that delivers on such a commitment."

University of Warwick’s Vice-Chancellor, Professor Stuart Croft

Europe is a place where research impact and knowledge exchange can be delivered. Brussels is the seat of the EU government and is a base for business and industry, international organisations, think tanks, and other opinion-leaders all of whom have an interest in the latest research. Beyond Brussels, national governments, and business and industry in Europe are potential impact and knowledge exchange partners for Warwick researchers. Support is available to academics, researchers and Professional Services Staff, such as Warwick Innovations, seeking to deliver research impact and knowledge exchange.

Warwick is proud to be a member of a number of prestigious networks in Europe, such as The Guild of European Research Intensive Universities, Science|Business and Friends of Europe. These networks provide Warwick with a wealth of opportunities to effectively engage with higher education providers, researchers, policy-makers, industry and other actors across Europe.

We are also excited to be part of the European Union’s European University Initiative. Alongside five European partners, Warwick launched the EUTOPIA alliance, a challenge-led, student-centred, place-based inclusive alliance of entrepreneurial, change focused universities. The six partners are committed to working closely together to address global challenges through collaborative research, increased mobility of students and staff, and shared innovations which serve the wider public in all of Europe’s regions.
