Who we are

The objective of the EUK is a strengthening and profiling of the consultancy expertise at Brandenburg universities concerning the acquisition and management of EU research projects by offering a platform for intense networking and pooling as well as development of competences in EU research funding. At the same time the network enhances the visibility of Brandenburg`s institutions for EU project cooperations. In the long run, the EUK should foster the participation of Brandenburg universities in EU research funded projects and enhance the quality of EU grant proposals and their success rates.

Main tasks of the EUK:

  • peer to peer consulting and internal exchange of expertise
  • strategic capacity building with individual strategic focuses at the universities
  • continuous education for researchers, EU liaison officers and administrative staff
  • information exchange with stakeholders in Brussels
  • development of common consultancy tools
  • preparation and provision of information for researchers


The EUK`s actions are carried out by the EU liaison officers of the participating universities. The network is being coordinated by the Eberswalde University for Sustainable Development.

The EUK is funded by the Brandenburg Ministry of Science, Research and Culture.
