Welcome to the UCL European Institute, UCL's hub for research, collaboration and information on Europe and the European Union.
The EU is faced with the challenges of fashioning practices and institutions that reconcile the conflicting demands on political representatives from their international partners and their domestic constituents. This has been particularly manifest in the eurozone recently, but it reflects a deeper challenge which also concerns non euro-area members such as the UK.

Calls for proposal international strategic collaboration Utrecht University
20 February 2014
In 2014 Utrecht University launched new calls for proposals to strengthen the strategic collaboration with a selected number of strategic international partner universities.
Utrecht University invites researchers and teachers to collaborate with their staff to discuss new initiatives for joint activities in research and education. At Utrecht University seed funding is available for Intensive Workshops and Visiting Fellowships.
Utrecht University will co-fund joint scientific workshops in 2014 to strengthen the ties with its strategic international partners (UUPs) and international partners with a strong international profile in at least one UU strategic theme by bringing top scholars together. An intensive workshop is an expert meeting of scientific leaders to strengthen existing or initiate new collaborations between international partners (preferably at least one Utrecht University Partner). The main purpose of the workshop should be to explore and set up new (external funded) cooperation projects in research (e.g. EC projects) and/or education (e.g. structured mobility of students or staff, e-learning or other joint programmes) in one of the strategic themes of Utrecht University. The maximum grant will be €7.500. For more information (a.o. criteria, application procedure) see the attached call text.
