The main goal of the SNU EU Centre is to develop a national and East Asian hub for EU studies. The Centre will coordinate the teaching, research and outreach activities in EU affairs, and mobilize all human and financial resources through its diverse networks and partnerships, and thereby maximize a synergy effect.


The SNU EU Centre will also reflect the bilateral policy agenda between the EU and Korea, which culminated not only with the EU Framework Agreement on trade and cooperation with Korea and its attached political declaration announced in 1996 but also the Korea-EU FTA effectuated in 2011, strengthening economic and trade relations as well as developing broad-based cooperation activities.


The SNU EU Centre strives to conduct research to promote East Asian integration, drawing lessons from European integration.
