Studio Europa Maastricht is a centre of expertise for Europe-related public debate and academic research.

Founded in 2018 and supported by the partners of the Maastricht, Working on Europe programme: Maastricht University, the Province of Limburg and the City of Maastricht. Together we aim to position Maastricht as a meeting place for citizen dialogue and debate and establish a centre of excellence for research on Europe and European integration.

Our organisation consists of three pillars:

Academic research
We are a leading centre for multi-disciplinary Europe-focused research with societal impact.

European heritage
We bring the legacy of the Maastricht Treaty, since 2018 proud holder of the European Heritage Label, to life.

Public debate
We stimulate active, critical debate with engagement at its core and capture and share the stories of Europe.
