Welcome to the UCL European Institute, UCL's hub for research, collaboration and information on Europe and the European Union. We are part of the Institute of Advanced Studies.
Can a long-term and comparative understanding of the nature of imperial identities shed light on some of the dynamics behind Brexit? The ways in which empires – and their collapse – transform their central regions as much as the colonies constitute a significant part of the story, argues Andrew Gardner, summarising an article recently published in the Journal of Social Archaeology.

Workshop for young practitioners and researchers
19 March 2013
Booking information below
Eurocode 7 has been established as the current European standard for geotechnical engineering design. The next generation of geotechnical engineers (current graduates and young researchers) will use EC7 on a regular basis. This workshop aims to encourage young geotechnical engineers to engage with the new European safety codes and design methodologies. Talks by international experts involved in the development of EC7 will be followed by presentations from designers about their experience with EC7 compliant design.
