1. European Court Graduate Travel Stipend. The School of Law, currently ranked 14th in the US (US News World & Report, 2011), has made a major investment in the expansion and enhancement of its international and comparative law programs. In the core law faculty, five scholars concentrate significantly on Europe, and two are among the foremost leading authorities in their fields: Inga Markovits and Basil S. Markesinis. President Powers, previously dean of the Law School, has himself been an impressive leader in this regard. In 2009, President Powers was in fact appointed to the rank of Chevalier de la Légion d'Honneur, the prestigious order created by Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte in 1804, for his work in establishing the French Judicial Visiting Fellowship program at UT. Thanks to President Powers’s efforts, UT law students now spend more time overseas than ever before in the school’s history as a result of an opening in exchanges around the world and new internship opportunities. The Graduate Travel Stipend program here proposed will intensify and deepen UT’s commitment to exposing law students to Europe through practical experiences by assisting one student each year to attend the European Court of Justice in Luxemburg.

2. EU Public Policy or EU-US Relations PhD Research Grant. The overall aim of this grant is to ensure that EU public policy ideas and best practices are widely understood in the US by both academia and policy makers alike. To this effect, this research grant will award graduate students at UT the opportunity to conduct field research in Europe and meet with key policy makers at the supranational and Member State national level.

4. EU Public Policy or EU-US Relations Faculty Research Grant. The overall aim of this grant is to ensure that EU public policy ideas and best practices are widely understood in the US by both academia and policy makers alike. To this effect, this research grant will award faculty at UT the opportunity to conduct field research in Europe and meet with key policy makers at the supranational and Member State national level.

4. Business Studies Stipend. Business School faculty, as well as faculty in other disciplines (such as Economics, Government, and LBJ) who are researching business-related topics, recognize that the US and EU share many economic and business interests. Nevertheless, researchers’ interests have shifted disproportionately toward Asia in the past decade, following the general drift of attention in the business media. CIBER, a program housed in the McCombs School of Business, understands this well, and to this end it will fund every year beginning next year two $4,000 faculty stipends for research on topics dedicated to the EU, or to support collaborative research between researchers at our university and their colleagues in the EU in an effort to promote increased dialogue about important topics of common interest. CES will be responsible for promoting, selecting, and administering the awards.


Fulfillment of Objectives for Faculty and Student Research Grants:

This program will fulfill the expected outcomes of Objective 1 (increasing the number of students researching the EU and acquiring practical hands-on experience, as well as increasing the numbers of university faculty and other scholars, including professional school faculty and graduate students, conducting research on issues of applied EU and EU-US public policies) and Objective 4 (embedding Center activities in ongoing University programs). We are also confident that it will meet the goals of Objective 1 by assisting students and faculty with research funds that will ultimately permit them to produce “Informed books, articles, and briefing papers devoted to issues of applied EU and EU-US public policies.”



EU CENTERS 2011-14

Proposal Narrative Form

4.A.3. Activities: Scholars in Residence and Other Visitors. Indicate all visitors (either specific individuals or ‘profiles’) planned during each academic year for the entire 2011-14 grant period, including the timing of their stay and the likely nature and impact of their activities. Where relevant, indicate the means of selecting visitors via a competitive process. Please also specify how these activities will further the program policy objectives and produce the related outcomes set out in section II of the Call for Proposals, and provide measurable criteria for evaluating their implementation. Attach additional page(s) if necessary.
European Scholar I and II
The Center will work with the Dean of the College of Liberal Arts to invite two European scholars each year—one from Germany (in connection with the distinguished and highly competitive DAAD program housed at UT), the other from Sweden (in connection with UT’s commitment to Swedish studies in the broader context of Europe studies)—to teach one course in one semester. Potential topics would be EU human rights, media, government, foreign policy, defense policy, immigration policy, journalism, law, business, and public health.
The selection of visiting professors will be on a competitive basis and overseen by Richard Flores, the Senior Associate Dean of the College of Liberal Arts.
All courses are regularly evaluated at UT, but, additionally, our external evaluator, CTL, will also oversee the measurement and evaluation process to help determine the efficacy of these new courses implemented for continuous adaptation and improvement.
Fulfillment of Objectives for European Scholars I and II:
Objective 1: This program will lead to the development of new courses and increase the number of faculty and students researching the EU.

Objective 2: We will encourage the visiting scholars to give talks, thus making their expertise available to the wider public and allowing them to establish contacts with the non-academic community of Texas.

Objective 5: The visiting scholar program will allow the Center to become even further embedded in ongoing UT programs by increasing its visibility and value.
Lecture Series
CES plans to hold three lecture series and co-ordinate on a fourth with the Strauss Center and LBJ. They are as follows: (1) The EU Center of Excellence EU-US Distinguished Business and Politics Lecture Series; (2) The EU Center of Excellence “Europe and Islam Speak” Lecture and Seminar Cultural Exchange Series; (3) The EU Center of Excellence Diplomat Speakers Series; and (4) The EU Center of Excellence Lecture Series in Anthropology.
Information, Dissemination and Measurable Criteria aspect for all lectures:

  • We will involve the local media in these lectures.

  • We will seek the broadest possible community audience to ensure that the series has an outreach component to it.

  • All participants will be asked to fill out a satisfaction survey and offer suggestions on how the lectures series could be more useful for their needs.

  • Our external evaluator, CTL, will oversee the measurement and evaluation process to help determine the efficacy of the lectures series implemented for continuous adaptation and improvement.

What follows are details regarding the lecture series and relevant target objectives.
I. EU Center of Excellence EU-US Distinguished Business and Politics Lecture Series
We propose a series of presentations that address contemporary developments in the economies and international relations of the EU and US. The lecture series will bring in a number of speakers to UT. This series will be widely advertised and open to the public as well as our partner educational institutions in Austin and Central Texas. We will work closely with these partners as well as with the Austin’s International Hospitality Council, the Texas Governor Office, The Texas Senate Committee on International Relations and Trade, the Texas House Committee on Border and International Affairs, and the Austin Chamber of Congress to choose the speakers who would most effectively contribute to the policy debate in Texas. We will also contact the Central Texas business community when organizing the series.

Our overarching theme for the lecture series will fall under the title of “Shared Prosperity? The Common Economic Interests of the US and the EU.” The term “shared prosperity” comes from a famous FDR quote and was applied specifically to the US and Europe by Averill Herriman, Truman’s commerce secretary, in the context of the Marshall Plan. The phrase is both historically interesting and also something of a challenge to consider whether it still holds true in the present global economy in the context of the EU and EU-US relations.


Target Audience: We are targeting 150-200 attendees for the lectures.
We have already identified the first year’s speakers and the topics of their talks for the series. They will be:


  • The Future of the Nuclear Energy Business in Europe and the US

Rex Tillerson Chairman and CEO, Exxon Mobil Corp.


  • Reshoring in the US and Europe: The End of the Outsourcing Era?

Caspar Hunsche, Senior Director, The Supply Chain Council, Inc.


  • Interdependencies in the Global Downturn and the Risks of Protectionism

Pankaj Ghemawat, Professor of Global Strategy, IESE Business School, Barcelona and Author of World 3.0: Global Prosperity and How to Achieve It.
The lecture series events are also highly structured and will be incorporated into our outreach efforts. To this end, each invited speaker will be asked to participate in a series of events, organized as follows:
DAY 1

5:00pm: Public lecture (45 minutes) plus question and answer period (30-minutes) Free to faculty and students. Broadcast of lecture posted on UT-sponsor websites/ University Channel.

6:15pm: 45-minute reception for attendees.

7:15pm: Private dinner and discussion session with invited faculty, university and local VIPs, and corporate sponsors. Discussions off the record. (Max. 20 guests.)



DAY 2

8:00am: (Time flexible) Breakfast meeting in partnership with International Center of Austin for business community and public.


Fulfillment of Objectives for Business and Politics Lecture Series:
Objective 1: The high profile speakers will increase the awareness of EU policies on campus.

Objective 2: The Lecture Series will be open to the public and will thus fulfill most of the expected outcomes under Objective 2. Furthermore, we intend to work closely with our regional educational, business, and institutional partners in order to plan the Lecture Series in a way that is most beneficial to them. Local media will also be invited to participate in covering the speakers and interviewing them.

Objective 5: We will open the Lecture Series to the faculty in a way where they can integrate their class activities around the talks. In that way we will embed the center activities in the ongoing UT programs. The Lecture Series will continue a long tradition of the McCombs School of Business working closely with the Texas business community in developing strategies for investment. Furthermore, the Lecture Series will raise the profile of the Center in the business community, leading to new sources of funding.
II. EU Center of Excellence “Europe and Islam Speak” Lecture and Seminar Cultural Exchange Series
Islam has unquestionably “globalized” itself in the last 30 years. Immigration and new technologies of communication such as the Internet have favored the establishment of Muslim communities in Europe and the EU. The consequences of this change are felt strongest in France, the western European country with the highest population of Muslims and with one of Europe’s oldest shared histories with Islam. Today, France’s Muslims number 5-6 million. They have been at the forefront of efforts to rethink Islam and its place in the world, either looking within Europe and the EU for a “Euro-Islam” (the Europeanization of Islam) or to pan-Islamic movements that identify outwards towards the global community of believers (ummah). These in turn have been confronted by both France’s leftist traditions of secularism (laicïté), which see Islam as an existential threat to cherished Republican institutions, and the right-wing’s integralist nationalism that construes Islam as essentially alien to the Catholic France they support. Understanding the historical, sociological, and cultural dimensions of Islam and French national identity is a difficult task, and it is central to a nuanced understanding of Islam in Europe and the EU. As a National Resource Center funded through the US Department of Education, our ongoing institutional affiliation and cooperation between the École des hautes études en sciences sociales (EHESS) in Paris, which began in 2010-11, marks an important link forward for scholarship. It brings together researchers representing many different fields of study in the US and France to clearly identify the core issues at stake in these events and chart their broader historical importance as they relate to the US, Europe, and the EU. We will continue to organize through the exchange three such lectures/seminars over the course of the grant cycle.
Target Audience: Our target audience is 50-75 attendees per lecture.
Fulfillment of Objectives for the EU/Islam Lecture Series:


Objective 1: The high profile speakers will increase the awareness of EU policies towards Islam on campus.

Objective 2: The Lecture Series will be open to the public and will thus fulfill most of the expected outcomes under Objective 2. Furthermore, we intend to work closely with our regional educational and institutional partners in order to plan the Lecture Series in a way that is most beneficial to them. Local media will also be invited to participate in covering the speakers and interviewing them.

Objective 5: We will open the Lecture Series to the faculty in a way where they can integrate their class activities around the talks. In that way we will embed the center activities in the ongoing UT programs. To this end, we have asked both Dr. Benjamin Bowers, an expert in French and Muslim relations in the History Department, and Dr. Terri Givens, an expert in the EU and Immigration policy in the Government Department, to organize this series to ensure that the lectures dovetail with existing and planned curricula over the three-year grant period.
III. EU Center of Excellence Diplomat Speakers Series
The Center will cooperate with the Lyndon Baines Johnson School of Public Affairs and the Strauss Center to continue to bring high level and senior policy makers and diplomats from Europe to UT. The two institutes will offer their speakers as an “in-kind” contribution to the Center and CES will help them with the selection of speakers.
Target Audience: Our target audience is 75-100 attendees per lecture.
Fulfillment of Objectives for the Diplomat Lecture:


Objective 1: The high profile speakers will increase the awareness of EU policies on campus.

Objective 2: The Lecture Series will be open to the public and will thus fulfill most of the expected outcomes under Objective 2. Local media will also be invited to participate in covering the speakers and interviewing them.

Objective 5: We will open the Lecture Series to the faculty in a way where they can integrate their class activities around the talks. In that way we will embed the center activities in the ongoing UT programs.
IV. EU Center of Excellence Lecture Series in Anthropology
The Center for European Studies at UT announces the launching of the EU Center of Excellence Lecture Series in Anthropology. The series will enable the Center to invite distinguished anthropologists and intellectuals invested in matters of contemporary European culture and society, and whose work is related to studies of the EU. We are especially interested in individuals whose research intersects with other fields, including, but not limited to, globalization and transnational studies.
We aim to start the series with Vincent Crapanzano, Professor of Anthropology and Comparative Literature at the City University of New York, Graduate Center. His research interests include symbolic and interpretive anthropology, ethno-psychology, anthropology and literature, and theories of interpretation. His newest book, The Harkis: The Wound That Never Heals, is a haunting chronicle of betrayal and abandonment, ostracism and exile, racism and humiliation, in which the author examines the story of the Harkis, the quarter of a million Algerian auxiliary troops who fought for the French in Algeria’s war of independence. The focus of Prof. Crapanzano’s lecture, however, will be on the children of the Harkis who, living in France today, still suffer from their parents’ wounds. Many have become activists, lobbying for recognition of their parents’ sacrifices, compensation, and an apology. In examining the offspring of the Harkis, Prof. Crapanzano will show how children bear responsibility for the choices their parents make, how personal identity is shaped by the impersonal forces of history, and how violence insinuates itself into every facet of human life. He will also demonstrate how events of the past have legal resonances in the present and how the matter of the Harkis and their descendants needs to be understood within the broader context of postcolonial migration and identity politics in the EU today.
Target Audience: Our target audience is 40-60 attendees for the lectures.
Fulfillment of Objectives for the Anthropology Lecture Series:


Objective 1: The high profile speakers will increase the awareness of EU policies on campus.

Objective 2: The Lecture Series will be open to the public and will thus fulfill most of the expected outcomes under Objective 2. Furthermore, we intend to work closely with our regional educational and institutional partners in order to plan the Lecture Series in a way that is most beneficial to them. Local media will also be invited to participate in covering the speakers and interviewing them.

Objective 5: We will open the Lecture Series to the faculty in a way where they can integrate their class activities around the talks. In that way we will embed the center activities in the ongoing UT programs. To this end, we are working closely with the new Chair of Anthropology, Dr. Katie Stewart, on this project and have her full support, and we will be integrating these lectures into the activities and classes of the Department of French and Italian.


EU CENTERS 2011-14

Proposal Narrative Form

4.A.4. Activities: Working Papers, Newsletters, and Other Publications. Indicate all working papers, newsletters and any other publications not described under ‘Conferences and Workshops’ to be implemented during each academic year of the 2011-14 grant period. Be sure to include targeted audience(s), likely number of recipients, and planned means of dissemination. Please also specify how these activities will further the program policy objectives and produce the related outcomes set out in section II of the Call for Proposals, and provide measurable criteria for evaluating their implementation. Attach additional page(s) if necessary.
Newsletter
The Center’s monthly newsletter, which will be run and developed by our Communications Specialist, will do the following to disseminate information:


  • List the upcoming EU Center events, as well as European related events put on by other schools and departments both at UT and our partner educational institutions in the region,

  • Provide the upcoming deadlines for funding and grants from the EU Center, as well as funding opportunities from other schools and departments within UT,

  • List the upcoming deadlines for funding and grants from non-University of Texas entities (EU, US State Department, Council for European Studies, etc.), and

  • Provide links to the news sources about issues in the EU (such as the EU’s Press Room: http://europa.eu/press_room/index_en.htm).

To disseminate our newsletter, the Center will create an extensive email list compiled from participants to our events, interested students, and partners in professional schools and academic departments. We will also work closely with our partners in the Texas State government and local businesses to increase our email list and thus the readership of our newsletter. We will have a user-friendly portal for outreach access, with links to Hemispheres, the international outreach consortium at UT, of which CES is a vital member, along with the Center for Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies (CREEES).


We will also use our newsletter to advertise our fellow US and Canadian Centers of EU Excellence. We will have links to their websites embedded in the newsletter and will inform our readership of their upcoming events.
To assess the success of our newsletter we will primarily look at the statistics of our readership. We will also have an email link in our newsletter for suggestions on how we can improve it.

With the newsletter we aim to fulfill the expected outcomes of all the proposed Objectives. The newsletter will increase awareness of our educational events, it will constitute an important strategy in our public outreach, it will strengthen “people-to-people” links, it will consolidate and enhance the effectiveness of the network of EU Centers of excellence, and it will center our activities in ongoing UT programs through increased visibility and advertising.


EU CENTERS 2011-14

Proposal Narrative Form

4.A.5. Activities: Curriculum Development. Indicate all faculty curriculum development grants or other curricular activities to be implemented during each academic year for the entire 2011-14 grant period. Describe likely course or program themes and the likely number of students impacted. Any faculty grants in this category must be made by competitive process and none can be awarded to EU Center staff (see section III of the Call for Proposals). Please also specify how these activities will further the program policy objectives and produce the related outcomes set out in section II of the Call for Proposals, and provide measurable criteria for evaluating their implementation. Attach additional page(s) if necessary.
All curriculum development grants for teaching at UT will be made available through a competitive process open to all UT Faculty. The Center staff, Director, and members of the Executive Board will not be allowed to participate.
We will evaluate the implementation of the program through feedback from the faculty member receiving the grant, a voluntary survey completed by the students enrolled in the developed courses, and a quantitative measure of the interest in the course in comparison to other courses at UT. All courses are regularly evaluated at UT, but, additionally, our external evaluator, CTL, will oversee the measurement and evaluation process to help determine the efficacy of these new courses implemented and how we can improve upon them through continuous monitoring and adaptation.
Course Development Plans
CES is proposing three “course development” projects, and including information here about an important ongoing outreach project with a local institution of higher learning. We will be encouraging the faculty applying for the Curriculum Development grants to incorporate our Conferences, Workshops, and Colloquium Series in their syllabus (again pending that the research topics match).
What follows are details regarding the three course development projects and information about the fourth, which focuses on the EU and Europe:
Course Development I: We are committed to increasing the number of EU courses that bridge the business and humanities curriculum, as well as to making those courses available to both Liberal Arts majors and Business majors. To that end, we will be providing funds for competitive proposals for the development and instruction of writing-intensive courses related to commerce and business in the EU in the following five areas, with the aim of funding at least three of the best course proposals submitted: (1) The Commercial Environment in the EU; (2) Culture and the Fashion Industry in the EU; (3) The EU as a Single Market: Potential and Prospects; (4) Corporate Governance and Competitive Policy in the EU; and (5) The Euro and European Financial Markets. We will look to video-conference these courses with one of our partner institutions in Europe. Our Target Audience for each class is 30-35 students.
Course Development II: The second objective is to allow one faculty member to create a new “Signature Course” on the topic of “leadership” in the EU widely construed. The signature course program, recently implemented by the College of Undergraduate Studies, provides all first-year students at UT with a course that helps them make the transition from promising high school students to worldly, knowledge-driven college students. As such it constitutes an important gateway course that can shape what students will study during their time at UT. By offering such a course, we aim to capture the attention of students early on, in their first year of study, and thereby foster interests for many UT undergraduates in Europe and the EU throughout their entire college career.
Target Audience: Our target audience for each class is 15-18 if it is approved as a seminar, 50-100 students if it is approved as a lecture. (Please note: If a lecture course, the professor will receive one graduate Teaching Assistant (TA) for every 50 students to conduct Friday discussion sections on the material covered in the weekly lectures.)
Course Development III: CES has recently received an award valued at BLAH through LAITS (Liberal Arts Instructional Technology Services) to radically develop, enrich, and revise during the grant period its core required introductory course for all European Studies majors (of which there are roughly 60 to 70 in any given year). The proposed revision of the Introduction to European Studies (EUS 305), which focuses primarily on the EU, offers an innovative approach to constructing an expanded, interdisciplinary gateway course at UT.
The broad aim of this grant, which will involve a team of faculty experts led by Dr. Katherine Arens in Germanic Studies, will help create a standard framework of teaching and learning for faculty coming to teach this course, with new appropriate introductory teaching materials made available to all instructors. Moreover, it will allow CES to meet the needs of a large group of students (we are planning to expand the course through these revisions to 100 students) while still remaining true to EUS 305’s essential function as a key gateway course for its majors with task-oriented, learning-based, classroom activities.
On the national scale, such course models do not exist for large class environments, for content-based and criterion-referenced learning scenarios, and for teaching assistant (TA) training. The data that can be produced in assessing this innovation will be without parallel and critically important for teaching models for the next generation of interdisciplinary work dedicated to European Studies and the EU. Our plan is to make these teaching and class materials available through the web as part of an Open Access Initiative. The instructional project will be evaluated through continuous feedback and adaptation and monitored by LAITS and our external evaluator, CTL.
Finally, by significantly enlarging the class, we aim to bring EU studies to a broader population of students at UT—not only to the 60 to 70 majors in European Studies, that is, but also to the roughly 1,650 majors in the Government Department and the roughly 500 majors in the newly implemented IRG (International Relations and Global Studies) major, which counts Europe as one of its fields for the major. Moreover, as the course is assessed and developed, we aim to connect with an even broader undergraduate audience in partner Texas universities. As designed, the course in fact has potential to be streamed remotely, with students from various institutions, both in the US and in Europe, collaborating on projects on a wiki platform, receiving RIS streams and receiving oral versions of the students’ briefing book projects as short “webinars” (real-time seminar meetings via the WEB) or podcasts.
Target Audience: 100 students per class.
Course Development IV: As part of its overall outreach efforts as a National Resource Center, and in particular with an aim to forging connections with minority institutions in the community, CES will continue to develop a series of classes on European and EU-related topics at Huston-Tillotson University, a historically black college in the heart of Austin, Texas. Indeed, we feel it is central to our mission as not only a National Resource Center of European Studies but also as the flagship university of the state of Texas to actively bring our formidable resources—both monetary and pedagogical—to the less privileged and less well-endowed institutions of higher learning in our state. To this end, we anticipate funding as an NRC and teaching the following courses over the grant cycle at Huston-Tillotson:


  • Fall 2012 - International Politics with a focus on Europe and the EU

  • Spring 2012 - The European Union

  • Fall 2012 - Comparative Government with a focus on Europe and the EU

  • Spring 2013 - Modern European History and the EU

  • Fall 2013 - European Politics and the EU

  • Spring 2014 - War and Peace in Europe and the EU


Target Audience: We anticipate 10-15 students per class at Huston-Tillotson.
Fulfillment of Objectives for Course Developments Projects:
Objective 1: Course development will fulfill the objective of developing centers of academic excellence in EU studies. It will also create new EU teaching materials, many of them adaptable for hybrid educational purposes, which will benefit programs invested in EU studies not only at UT but also nationwide. Furthermore, by increasing the size of the classes, the project will have a multiplying effect: it will increase opportunities for students from all over campus to take our core class and thus “allow access to EU courses not only to a small group of students focusing on EU studies, but also to a wider number of students who follow another main curriculum and have a more targeted interest in specific aspects of the EU.”
Objective 2: The course development with Huston-Tillotson will allow UT to bring knowledge about the EU to “regional universities and colleges (four year and two year).” It will also draw that local university into EU Center activities at UT.
Objective 3: The course development projects will markedly strengthen “people-to-people links” between university faculty, students and their host institutions in the EU and US. We will also increase “curricular development programs developed, for example, by effective use of video-conferencing and other technologies.” Finally, in keeping with Objective 3, our aim will be to use video and web technology to link classes—both with partner institutions in the US and in Europe—in Course Development projects I and IV over the next three years.
Post-Baccalaureate Degree Development Plans
Creating a Masters of European Studies:
CES has approval from both the dean of the College of Liberal Arts (Randy Diehl) and the dean of LBJ (Ambassador Robert Hutchings) to move forward with the creation and implementation of a joint MA in European Studies that would concentrate on the EU. In fashioning this MA, we also intend to work closely with the Center for East European, Eurasian, and Russian Studies (CREEES), which already has an MA, and the UT School of Law. Our plan is to submit the MA proposal for review in fall 2012. Since it usually takes six months for the proposal to move through the university administrative channels and then receive final approval from the UT-wide system Coordinating Board, we expect that we can begin receiving applications by late 2013, with the plan of admitting our first group of students in fall 2014. 


EU CENTERS 2011-14

Proposal Narrative Form
4.A.6. Activities: Website. Describe the likely content and design of your proposed EU Center of Excellence web site, or any planned modifications to the current structure and/or content of an existing EUCE web site. Please also specify how these activities will further the program policy objectives and produce the related outcomes set out in section II of the Call for Proposals, and provide measurable criteria for evaluating their implementation. Attach additional page(s) if necessary.
The website, which will be run and developed by our proposed Communications Specialist, will provide the Center with an outreach and informative capacity. We intend to put all of our events and programs on the website. We will also create direct links to the existing EUCE website as well as to all other American and Canadian EU Centers of Excellence. We will also provide links to research grants and funds available through non-UT external institutions.
The Center will also use the website as a portal for EU related information and news in the broadest sense. It will maintain an overview of open source information on the EU, both in terms of links to EU institutional websites and in terms of the best media, blogs, and academic sites that are useful to researchers and policy makers.
We will place all of our conferences and major events on the website in a video format, available for either download or viewing through streaming “tube” technology.
All the conference reports and papers will be available for download through the website if they are not already contracted for publication by a journal or press.
As such, we believe that our website will fulfill all of the expected outcomes listed in Objectives section of the Call for Proposals. EU CENTERS 2011-14
