Curating and hosting events is one of the many ways we support education and research on Europe within the UCL community and beyond.

Since its launch, the European Institute at UCL has been a genuine hub of exchange, transmission of ideas and debates on European matters. It has been an excellent locus to organise conferences on various political matters. I have had the chance to organise several events with the intellectual and logistical support of the EI and its staff.   

--Philippe Marlière, Professor of French and European Politics
