New project site: Rome Multidisciplinary Research Hub 

24 April 2018



Funded by UCL, the Rome Hub fosters collaboration with Italian partners, to support research excellence and international mobility across disciplines.


The Rome Multidisciplinary Research Hub is a new UCL project which supports internationally collaborative research and research-based learning that can underpin strategic partnerships in research, education and enterprise. It seeks to shape debates about the future of Higher Education and research in Europe, through an outward-facing, internationally networked reserach base in Italy. Our activities are supported by the UCL Global Engagement Office (GEO) and the Pro-Vice-Provost (Europe), Dr Uta Staiger, in collaboration with the Faculties of Arts and Humanities, Social and Historical Sciences and the Bartlett (Built Environment), and the UCL Institute of Advanced Studies (IAS).

Since January 2017, the Rome Multisciplinary Research Hub has facilitated six international conferences, eight symposia, a lecture series, and two week-long graduate training programmes. Many of these initiatives are scheduled to take place between April and June 2018, in the context of the UCL Global Engagement Office's Regional Funding Initiative for Rome.

All activities are informed by the cross-disciplinary "UCL in Rome" Working Party, founded in 2016, which currently comprises over fifty UCL researchers, based in eight faculties and eighteen departments. To find out more about the Rome Multidisciplinary Research Hub, please contact the Chair of the Working Party, Dr Florian Mussgnug (School of European Languages, Culture and Society) at f.mussgnug@ucl.ac.uk.
