Celebrating Europe Day 2019

Europe Day takes place on 9th May every year with a variety of activities and events celebrating peace and unity in Europe. The date marks the anniversary of the historical ‘Schuman declaration‘ in Paris in 1950 when the then French foreign minister Robert Schuman set out his idea for a new form of political cooperation in Europe, which would make war between Europe’s nations unthinkable.

In a statement to mark EU day, Bangor’s Vice Chancellor, Professor John G. Hughes, said: “EU funding has been vital to the university in terms of supporting our collaborative and fundamental research, raising skill levels amongst its students, supporting innovation as well as bringing substantial benefits to our wider community, in both economic and social terms.”
