The regional cluster ALLIANCE EUROPA which covers the entire Pays-de-la-Loire region and which the EU-Asia Institute is an active member of, is developing steadily. We recently reported about its second “forum” on 9 May, an event held twice a year.

Presentation clip of the ‘Fabrique des Idées européennes’

Concerning its research activities, the first call for project proposals have been launched and are currently in the evaluation phase. At least two large-scale projects are expected to be launched as early as September 2016.

Another facet of its activities is the so-called ‘Fabrique des Idées européennes’ (‘Factory of European Ideas’), conceived as a ‘nursery’ for innovative ideas and projects that bring together academia and civil society around European themes. A call for proposals is open and several projects are due to be launched in the next months.

The ‘Fabrique’ has just issued a nice little clip where it presents its purpose and ambition in slightly less than three minutes. Even without being a fluent speaker of French, one should get the idea of it.
