Bangor University Celebrates Europe Day 2019

On 9 May, the University, along with many establishments across the UK and Europe, will mark Europe Day with a number of events and activities. The European Union celebrates this day to mark the anniversary of the Schuman Declaration of 1950, considered to be the first official step in the creation of the European Union as it is today.

The EU banner will be raised on the flag pole above the university tower as usual, but this year, James Wilson of Bangor Mussel Producers, one of our industrial partners on joint EU projects with the School of Ocean Sciences, will sail his company’s mussel boat, Mare Gratia, from Penrhyn Docks at 12.00pm to the Marine Centre Wales in Menai Bridge where light refreshments will be available for passengers. The boat will be flying the EU flag during its journey there. (Contact Esther Howie for further details).

Also, on the day, the KESS2 and KESS 2 East projects will mark the occasion with a Tea and Cake reception in the Management Centre, between 2pm and 4pm. All are welcome. Bangor University leads the KESS 2 and KESS 2 East projects on behalf of the HE sector in Wales; the project objective is to support organisations the length and breadth of the country through collaborative Doctoral and Research Masters projects. KESS2 and KESS 2 East are funded through the European Social Fund (ESF).
