The situation at the EUI


At the height of the COVID-19 crisis in Italy, the EUI's academic activities on campus were suspended. A wide range of EUI academic activities continued remotely, such as supervision of PhD researchers, seminars, thesis defences, as well as PhD and LLM admission interviews.

Since the 5th of May 2020, the EUI has been gradually reopening its premises in line with the evolution of the outbreak in Italy.
