About the Centre

The European Union Centre in Singapore was established in mid-2008 with financial support from the European Union (EU). Its primary mission is to promote knowledge and understanding of the EU through support for EU-focused education, research and outreach activities. It is now a consortium of three local partners comprising the two largest public universities, Nanyang Technological University and National University of Singapore and Singapore’s oldest think tank, the Singapore Institute of International Affairs.

In the current period of our second Grant Agreement from 2013 to 2015, the Centre will be focusing our efforts on outreach through media, workshops and publications. The emphasis of the Centre is on building networks and partnerships between scholars and experts from the EU and those based in Singapore, and encouraging dialogue and policy learning between the EU and Singapore/ASEAN.

The Centre is now inviting applications for the EUC Visiting Fellowship tenable in the period between May to November 2015. Supporting grants of various amounts of up to €6,000 commensurate with expertise, visiting commitments and duration will be provided for the Visiting Fellow to cover travel, accommodation and subsistence allowances.
