Welcome to the UCL European Institute, UCL's hub for research, collaboration and information on Europe and the European Union.
EU decision-making assumes agreement at two levels: the national and the European. The dilemma highlighted by the crisis is how to make collective EU decisions acceptable not just to the 28 governments and MEPs but also to each of the peoples they represent. This problem cannot be resolved by either taking problematic decisions out of the political domain or confining them to decision-making purely at the EU level.

After many months of plans, news and social media chatter, the EU’s new “Horizon 2020” programme for investing €70 billion* in science and innovation from 2014-2020, has launched. The first calls are now online and UCL plans to be at the forefront of participation.

The European Institute offers an events support programme for UCL staff, for which we invite proposals.
The programme, a pilot during the first two years of its operation, aims to provide UCL staff with the opportunity to develop new collaborations within the university and beyond, broker new approaches to thinking and analysing Europe and the EU, and showcase the range of research being carried out at UCL.
We thus invite proposals for projects, usually if not exclusively event-based, which may or may not be related to the Institute’s annual theme – in 2010/11, “Europe and Islam”. They may be formulated in response to current affairs and topical developments relevant to Europe or the EU, or address long-standing, fundamental questions confronting Europe and its integration processes.
Funding of up to £1500 plus some administrative assistance is available to university faculty. The deadline for submission for proposals to take place in 2010-11 is 22 November 2010.
Please download the APPLICATION FORM here.
Projects will be selected by the Institute staff in consultation with the Institute’s Executive Committee. We will inform applicants of the result by the first week of December 2010.
We are looking to support in particular interdisciplinary projects that are convened by UCL staff from at least two departments, ideally two faculties.
Selection will be made on the basis of the following:
- The contribution to innovative research and debate on Europe and/or the EU
- Where applicable, evidence of the capacity to address publics beyond academia and/or create lasting outputs
- A disciplinary spread over all selected proposals
- A coherent programme
- A viable budget, ideally with additional sources of funding indicated.
