The Alcide De Gasperi Research Centre on the History of European Integration (ADG) was established in 2015 by the then EUI President Joseph Weiler to raise the relevance of the history of European integration in current scientific research at the EUI. The Centre promotes innovative research projects, facilitates the use of primary sources, supports young researchers, coordinates networks of historians, and increases public interest in the history of European integration.
The Centre is co-directed by Dieter Schlenker, Director of the Historical Archives of the European Union (HAEU), and Emmanuel Mourlon-Druol, Professor of the History of European Cooperation and Integration in the EUI's Department of History and Civilisation. The Centre thereby combines the expertise of the History Department with the resources available at the Historical Archives. It also receives support from an Advisory Board composed of academic experts in the fields of contemporary European history and European integration history.
The ADG gathers a growing team of experts in the field of European integration history, initiating and carrying out research projects and academic activities. It hosts several research projects, bringing together different academic institutions as well as providing key financial and staff resources.
