In a move to enhance academic collaboration in the fields of social sciences and humanities, the EUI has formalised two five-year Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) with the University of Warwick and the Institute of European and Comparative Law (IECL) at the University of Oxford.

These partnerships aim at strengthening the collaboration between the EUI and the two institutions through a wide range of opportunities, including visiting programmes for professors, fellows, and staff members, as well as an exchange programme for doctoral and postdoctoral researchers. Furthermore, the agreement with the University of Warwick also foresees a potential international mobility scheme for master students.

The EUI is also committed to fostering joint academic activities with both the IECL, with whom the collaboration will particularly focus on the realm of European Union law, and the University of Warwick. The EUI will work closely with the two institutions for the organisation of joint executive trainings, summer schools, workshops, conferences, and collaborative research projects, together with the exchange of publications and scientific and teaching material.

These partnerships represent a significant step forward in the EUI's internationalisation efforts, particularly within the UK academic environment. By forging alliances with these institutions, the EUI underscores its commitment to fostering global education and collaborative opportunities for its academic community.

The University of Warwick is one of the UK's leading universities, with an acknowledged reputation for excellence in research and teaching, innovation, and for links with business and industry. Warwick University is renowned for its entrepreneurialism, boundary-breaking research, and its teaching and business collaborations.

The Institute of European and Comparative Law (IECL) is one of the Research Centres of the Oxford Law Faculty. It was established in 1995 as the Centre for the Advanced Study of European and Comparative Law. Today, it is one of the leading research institutions of its kind in the English-speaking world. The Institute provides a focus for research and teaching in the fields of comparative law as well as European Union law and is at the helm of the Law Faculty's Comparative and European Law Research Group.
