UCL European Institute


UCL European Institute

Welcome to UCL's hub for research, collaboration and engagement on Europe.

We aim to promote academic excellence in the study of Europe across the disciplines at UCL, to provide a leading forum for intellectual debate, and to act as liaison between the university and UK and European publics. 

We offer a diverse programme of public events, provide expert analysis and commentary for media outlets and policymakers, coordinate and develop researcher networks, and support a wide range of researchers and Europe-focused research projects.
