Research at the EUI

Interdisciplinary, International, Innovative.

We ask fundamental questions about human society and investigate complex, real-world problems.

Intellectual creativity and debate thrive at the EUI through collaborative projects, workshops and webinars, conferences and outreach events, and summer schools and executive training.

Our research embraces interdisciplinary, comparative or contextual approaches, and many of our initiatives have a specifically European perspective.
