Welcome to the UCL European Institute
In 2020, the European Institute celebrated its 10th anniversary. Look back at the past decade of research, collaboration, and engagement on Europe in our 10th Anniversary Review.
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.

A new space on our website to highlight arts and humanities-focused outputs. Podcasts, blog posts, videos, and more to provoke thought and reflection.
This interactive map acts as a guide to London through the eyes of Europe's literary, musical, artistic and scientific minds.
The UCL Europe Blog is a multi-disciplinary academic blog run by the UCL European Institute.
There, you will find European-focused academic analysis and commentary from UCL academics and external contributors. The wide range of blogs covers issues ranging from EU politics and climate change to philosophy, public health, and Brexit. This project is an expansion of the former UCL Brexit Blog.

Part of our activities are funded by the European Union through the Jean Monnet programme. We have been a proud Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence since 2016, a designation that provides funding via the Erasmus+ programme.
The five project strands (Rule of law, Left-wing populism, Power vertical, Scotland and the EU, Britain and Europe 2.0) centre on how intensely held beliefs and new ways of doing politics increasingly challenge the status quo in Europe.
