ROSE: Research on Societies in Europe

Recent Activities

to be updated soon ...

ROSE is a working group of German EU-Liaison officers linked throughout Europe. Our major goals are to contribute to the debate on the creation of the new Framework Programme FP9 and moreover to sustainably strengthen the role of Research on Societies in national research landscapes and the European Research Area. These research fields must be seen as corner stones for cultivating Europe.
