The Centre coordinates the activities of its members as they relate to Europe, promotes exchanges between different research disciplines and also with media practitioners and seeks stronger international cooperation with foreign colleagues. Since the winter term 2002/2003, the Centre has mounted the series "Discussions about Europe", which caters for students from all disciplines and interested members of the public. Here researchers and media practitioners from Europe are invited as the opportunity arises.
Currently, the Centre has two major areas of activity: in the context of the EU’s Erasmus Mundus programme, the members of the Centre in addition participate in the Masters Programme "Journalism and Media within Globalization: The European Perspective", which is offered jointly with the universities of Århus, Amsterdam, London and Swansea (www.mundusjournalism.com). On the other hand, the Centre has coordinated the development of a research focus "Transculturality and European Public Spheres" for the Research Center for Media and Communication (RCMC).
