Print pagePDF page

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the web site of the Viessmann European Research Centre (previously called the Viessmann Research Centre on Modern Europe). This web site has been divided into sections that outline the Centre’s mandate, history, current research activities, along with information concerning previous and upcoming conferences.

The Centre aims to stimulate research on new and dynamic issues facing Europe in the 21st century. It is intended to be multi-disciplinary, with areas of research that include monetary policy in the Euro area and elsewhere in the 21st century, European integration, regional development, external linkages, trade and political expansions as well as other overarching socio-economic concerns.

In 2006 the Centre turned five years old. If you are interested in what the Centre has accomplished over the past 5 years you can download the report here. Alternatively, you can also look at our 2 page flyer that provides some essential information about the Centre and its activities.

The Viessmann European Research Centre is grateful to Dr. Hans Viessmann for his financial support and vision, and to Wilfrid Laurier University, for fostering an environment where this type of enterprise is welcomed as well as for continuing financial support. You can learn more about Dr. Viessmann’s role in the creation of this Centre by clicking on the link here.

You are encouraged to visit the Upcoming Events: VERC Annual Conferences and Upcoming Events: Workshops/Conferences pages. Our Policy Briefs are designed to be read by students and others interested in our activities and ongoing work at the Centre. We also receive visitors to the Centre. If you wish to visit WLU and the Centre there is some office space available as well as access to some of the University’s resources. Please feel free to contact me or the Associate Director, Al Hecht.

Our offices are located at 165 Albert St., Waterloo, ON, CANADA, N2L 3C5.

Dr. Alison Blay-Palmer, Director
