WEST in the Community
Bringing our expertise in West Europe to those outside of Indiana University
WEST maintains an ongoing relationship with IU's Center for International Business Education and Research, Indiana Business Research Center, and the School of Public and Environmental Affairs. These partnerships further our efforts to offer leaders in the Midwest a wealth of information on individual European countries and the European Union. Regularly, WEST offers policy briefs, conferences and webinars aimed at economic development professionals, government officials and business leaders. For a current list of scheduled events for this audience check our news and events page or the European Union Center's Business & Government resource page.
WEST can help members of the media locate experts for interviews on topics related to Western Europe and the European Union. Contact our office at (812) 855-3280 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will work to accomodate your request and your deadline.
Many times each semester, IU brings well respected experts to Bloomington to address timely topics of interest related to Western Europe. Videos of many of our guest speakers can be found on our home page. WEST also participates in a variety of cultural events annually held in Bloomington and the surrounding community such as Lotus World Music & Art Festival and the Indianapolis International Festival.
