The EUI has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the University of Luxembourg.
The agreement will facilitate the exchange of Ph.D. candidates between the two universities. Up to two students per year will be able to undertake an exchange, staying at the partner institution for up to six months. In addition, the memo allows for academic staff exchanges, and pledges to collaborate on research initiatives and joint conferences in fields of mutual interest.
The University of Luxembourg is a proudly international public research university, with three campuses spread across the country.
Professor Stéphane Pallage, Rector of the University of Luxembourg, and Professor Renaud Dehousse, President of the EUI, jointly signed the agreement at a ceremony at the EUI on 13 July 2018.
In a comment about the new agreement between the two institutions, Professor Dehousse said 'Reinforcing collaboration with national universities is a major priority for the EUI. Although we already enjoy manifold links with the University of Luxembourg, this new agreement will foster the development of a new generation of initiatives with a like-minded partner.'
