The Research Center Europe (FZE) was founded in 2009 as one of the university’s central academic institutes, having the main objective to support and broaden Trier University’s research profile.

The FZE is shaped mainly by its research groups and networks and their key research areas.

However, exchanging ideas and concepts across interdisciplinary boundaries as well as cooperating across disciplines, topics and methods are in the center of FZE’s work.

Another main focus is the international approach as well as the cooperation with researchers and research institutes around the world.
