The European Institute is UCL’s hub for research, collaboration and information on Europe and the European Union.
UCL has an exceptional range of expertise in the key disciplines of European Studies. It covers the core subjects of European integration study, including law, politics, economics, and history, but adds to it an unrivalled span of research and teaching in European languages, literatures, philosophy and the arts, as well as on European geography and built environment, medicine and health, and the sciences.
Building on this foundation, the UCL European Institute works to stimulate new research and support multidisciplinary collaboration across the university. It acts as the one-stop access to UCL expertise on Europe and the EU, and provides a conduit between the university and policy-makers, civil society and the media. We offer a diverse programme of public events, provide expert analysis and commentary, build up networks and alliances and aim to provide an intellectually stimulating environment for researchers at all stages of their careers.
Our objectives are:
- to promote academic excellence in research on Europe and the European Union, facilitate collaboration across the disciplines and lead on new projects;
- to provide a leading forum for debate by convening events series, including workshops, panel discussions, conferences and public lectures;
- to deliver comments, analysis and briefings on topical subjects and long-standing questions relevant to Europe and European integration;
- to serve as liaison to EU and UK policy-making communities; research centres and specialised think tanks; cultural organisations, civil society and the media;
- to support doctoral and postdoctoral researchers working together on shared topics of interest;
- to provide a specialised port of call for faculty, students and the wider public for information on our research expertise, teaching and projects.
