London Higher Europe (LHE)

London Higher Europe (LHE)

London Higher Europe (LHE) is a consortium of 11 Higher Education institutions based in London, United Kingdom. We are engaging with the EU and forming partnerships across 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 interests in actively engaging in Brussels and wish to collaborate on European research and innovation priorities. With such a diverse mixture of institutions, London Higher Europe’s membership covers a wide variety of strengths, including the creative industries, food, health, migration, smart cities, engineering and additive manufacturing.

London is one of the most connected centres of higher education globally and we can act as a central point of contact and put you in touch with the right people at the right universities in order to facilitate knowledge-exchange and collaboration. Our member HEIs have a proven record in research excellence across a range of disciplines in the EU and beyond.

So far we have run events, panel discussions, collaborations and academic delegations covering topics such as:
