European University Centre at Peking University

In April 2009 the European University Centre (EUC) opened at the main campus of Peking University, with the goal of establishing a centre for cooperation in research and education. Chairman for the first four year period was professor Göran Bexell, former Vice-Chancellor at Lund University. The new Chair, elected in June 2013, is professor Mary E.
