Joint European Research Centre of Leuphana University of Lüneburg

In June 2018 the University of Glasgow entered into a formal collaboration with Leuphana University of Lüneburg.‌

The European Centre for Advanced Studies (ECAS) was launched on 1 April, 2019, marking a major milestone in co-operation in research and teaching between the University of Glasgow and Leuphana University of Luneburg in Lower Saxony. 

ECAS is an independent research institution through which both universities will be able to pursue common interests in research and teaching in the fields of digital culture and media, business informatics, law, management, sustainability and psychology. In particular this will involve joint research and study programmes as well as the exchange of academics and students. The aim is also to establish a link between research institutions from Scotland and Lower Saxony.
