EU referendum: the view of a UCL clinician-scientist

John Martin, Professor of Cardiovascular Medicine at UCL, argues that scientific advance relies on creativity, cooperation, and financing. To leave the EU would diminish all three, dimming the light of British science in the world and threatening the UK’s future economy. This piece is part of the UCL European Institute’s commissioning partnership with openDemocracy. For more on this topic, join the UCL European Institute for its high-level panel discussion EU Membership and UK Science on 12 May.

The Czech Republic has been in the news recently because of its politicians' somewhat quick Celtic campaign to rebrand the country to the world as ‘Czechia’. But among political scientists and businesspeople the country's name has long suffered worst damage than this.

Opportunity: PhD workshop on the Eurozone Crisis

24 May 2013

A workshop on 13-14 June with PhD students from UCL, Yale and a select number of other universities, as well as some of the most important academic scholars currently working on the topic.


The European Institute is currently running a year-long project funded by the European Commission Representation in London on the Eurozone crisis and its implications for the democratic standards of the EU and its Member States.

As part of the series, we are offering PhD students the opportunity to discuss the topic with key scholars currently working on the topic, including Fritz Scharpf (Emeritus MPfG), Philippe van Parijs (Université Catholique de Louvain), Richard Bellamy (UCL European Institute), Kalypso Nicolaïdis (Oxford) and others.

 Interested?
  • Very limited spaces are still available for PhD students with relevant research interests.
  • Email us with a short outline of your work and background to apply. Deadline: 29 May 2013.
  • All costs will be covered.

The workshop will be followed by two public panel discussions with academics and political commentators.
