Alliance Europa

Explaining Europe differently

This is the ambition of Alliance Europa, a collective regional strategy to develop a centre of excellence on the study of the societal, cultural and political challenges facing Europe in the face of globalisation processes. Supported by the Pays de la Loire Region and led by the University of Nantes, it brings together four higher education institutions, local authorities and associations.

It is a regional cluster of European Studies that brings together over 120 researchers from 19 research centers based in 4 renowned higher education institutions: the University of Nantes, the University of Angers, Le Mans University and ESSCA School of Management. The Institute has a strong interdisciplinary mission. It has an international outlook, develops new pedagogical methods, offers a range of research-oriented study programmes and maintains strong links with both the civil society and the socio-economic environment.
