Welcome to the UCL European Institute, UCL's hub for research, collaboration and information on Europe and the European Union.
The age-old question of what holds our societies together re-emerges periodically, particularly in times of crisis. In a world ever more globalised and virtual, the answer is often cast in terms of "trust", with its pivotal role as regularly called upon as its health called into question.

Opening of our Exhibition and Awards Ceremony for the ‘Europe in London’ Photography Competition at Wilkins North Cloisters, from 7pm
London’s multicultural environment is the forefront of European diversity. The theme ‘Europe in London’ explores how Londoners from different places across the world perceive Europe.
UCL’s students had the opportunity to express what Europe means to them and what makes them feel as a part of this community.

The photos will be exhibited in the Print Room Café from Monday, 4th March.
With the support of the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Union.
