Initiative

London Higher Europe (LHE) is an initiative of London Higher, which represents over 40 publicly funded universities and colleges in London, and London’s European Office, representing the Mayor of London in Brussels. Our members have strong interest in actively engaging in Brussels and wish to collaborate on European research and innovation priorities. The research areas of our members include cultural and creative industries, food, health, migration, smart cities, energy, manufacturing and many more.

What we do:

  • Collaborate with our partners in Brussels and further afield; 
  • Engage members with stakeholders and shape the policy agenda;
  • Help members with one-to-one guidance, identifying potential European partners for collaboration;
  • Identify networking opportunities and organize events;
  • Promote member Institutions in Europe, generating esteem for London HE capacity;
