Julian Bauer joined the European University Association (EUA) in September 2015 as a Policy and Project Officer in the Research & Innovation Unit. Before starting at EUA, he coordinated an interdisciplinary research unit at the University of Konstanz.
Julian holds a Master degree in History from the same institution. He finished his PhD in 2012 on the history of systems theory. Afterwards Julian pursued a postdoc project in Konstanz on the Austrian physicist Ernst Mach and his theory of thought experiments.
His main areas of interest at EUA include the European Research Area (ERA), Gender Equality, Horizon 2020, Open Science, Regional Innovation Strategies for Smart Specialisation (RIS3), Research Integrity and, last not least, legal matters, such as copyright.
Legal matters, in particular copyright regulation, impinge upon the daily lives of students and researchers all over Europe. It is important to ensure that innovative teaching, learning and research take place in an unhindered way fit for the 21st century. LIBER’s Copyright & Legal Matters Working Group works towards that goal and I’m proud to be a part of this effort.
