The European Union and the Jawaharlal Nehru University have launched the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence for European Union Studies in India at the university. JNU is one of only two Centers of Excellence awarded EU funds in the country.
A statement stated, "One of the focus areas in the new strategy is on more people-to-people exchanges and cooperation on education and skills. The new Centre of Excellence at JNU will provide additional opportunities to students and researchers to work on EU studies in India."
The Centre of Excellence for European Union Studies in India (CEEUSI) at JNU will be offering greater visibility to EU studies in India and South Asia.
Tomasz Kozlowski, Ambassador of the European Union to India, said, "We are delighted to support the Centre of Excellence at JNU. EU-India relations are moving to an exciting new phase with the launch of the new EU Strategy for India in November 2018."
