Aston Centre for Europe 

Aston Centre for Europe (ACE) is a leading research centre for the study of European Politics & Society. 

The Aston Centre for Europe acts as a ‘hub’ for a range of Europe and EU-related research projects and teaching activities across the University. Reflecting the European strengths of Aston’s research culture, ACE has since 2009 become a major centre for research in European politics and society and ensured the real-world applicability of that research through practitioner engagement.

In its first five years, ACE's fundamental achievement is to have created a lively and supportive environment for political and social research on Europe.
