UACES is a membership organisation for academics working in the area of European Studies. We have around 1100 members from across the UK and Europe from a range of different career stages and institutions. We run conferences, events and administer funding schemes to support our members in their study. The Annual Conference is our biggest event each year and is attended by c. 450 delegates. Recent conference locations have included Lisbon, Bath and Krakow. The 2020 Annual Conference takes place in Belfast in September. UACES is run by a small team of office staff and a dedicated committee of trustees, headed by the UACES Officers (Chair, Secretary and Treasurer).
