The Research Council

Since December 2008, the principal mission of the Research Council has been to advise Institute bodies on decisions relating to research while stimulating and maintaining the scientific excellence.

It discusses and formulates policy and strategy with a view to reinforcing the Institute’s profile in order to attract the best candidates for its doctoral and postdoctoral programmes.

At its annual meeting the Research Council decides on the resources to allocate to joint research initiatives submitted by EUI professors.

It is composed of highly-qualified persons from outside the Institute.
