Horizon Europe grant for the Centre for International Studies and Development

We are excited to announce that, as part of an international consortium, the Centre for International Studies and Development has been awarded a Horizon Europe grant (HORIZON-WIDERA-2023-ERA-01-06).

Project entitled European Hub for Contemporary China (EuroHub4Sino) will receive funding of 2,499,687.50 EUR and will be conducted by 8 partners from 6 European countries.

The premise of the project is the assumption that the European Union needs to get to know and understand China on its own terms: not through the lens of other external sources but from its own European perspective. EuroHub4Sino aims to strengthen EU’s capacity to better understand contemporary China by building four interconnected and interdependent pillars that foresees (a) to develop a state-of-the-art digital platform that will serve the wider civil society in mainstreaming independent European knowledge about China. Creation of an inclusive and diverse (b) network that will make the most of the digital platform to conduct (c) collaborative research and communication activities. And lastly, developing (d) innovative and sustainable business model, which aim would be to support the continuation of work following the end of the project.

Dr hab. Marcin Grabowski will lead Jagiellonian University Team, which would include:

  • Łukasz Gacek, PhD.;
  • Małgorzata Abassy, PhD.;
