Mark Anderson
Director of The Europe Office
What makes us different:
• Proactive support is offered to the academic community whereby
calls are matched with appropriate specialisms;
• Support is also offered to non-research projects including regional
funding, international collaboration and exchange and mobility
• International collaboration projects are developed and coordinated
by TEO itself in order to widen and strengthen international networks
in line with international and research strategies and to generate direct
income streams to support Office activities.
TEO Objectives
1. Align the strategic goals of GCU with the opportunities available through EU
2. Effective promotion of EU programmes and delivery of successful EU funding

4. Delivery of international projects through The Europe Office that will enhance
the University’s international reputation as a global player while widening our
networks for future engagement and recruitment
5. Programme of vigilance to mitigate risk in EU project management and
6. Support international exchange and mobility
