EUI Interdisciplinary Research Clusters
The Interdisciplinary Research Clusters are supported by the EUI as sites for interdisciplinary exchange and collaboration. They raise awareness within the EUI community of scholars’ specific expertise and interests, fostering interactions within and beyond the clusters themselves. They promote effective policy-relevant research, something that thrives on insights and solutions from multiple disciplines. The themes of the clusters address challenging issues that are vital to academic research and societies at large.
