EUI in Brussels 2019
The European University Institute (EUI) plays a distinctive role in engaging with the world of practice, notably with the Brussels beltway as the European Union struggles to respond to and manage the multiple challenges it faces. The EUI has collaborated with EU Institutions in Brussels for many years, one of its founding aims being to 'foster the advancement of learning in fields which are of particular interest for the development of Europe'.
‘EUI in Brussels’ is therefore not a new programme, but its mission is to gather all of the Institute's relevant activities taking place in Brussels, under the same umbrella.
Below is a dynamic list of EUI initiatives in 2019 which seek to maximise the impact of our research at the policy-making level.
