European University Institute (EUI)

  • Description
  • The Euro­pean Uni­ver­sity Insti­tute (EUI) was set up in 1972 by the six found­ing Mem­ber States of the Euro­pean Com­mu­ni­ties to pro­vide advanced aca­d­e­mic train­ing to doc­toral researchers and to pro­mote research at the high­est level. It opened its doors to the first researchers in 1976.

    It car­ries out research in a Euro­pean per­spec­tive in Eco­nom­ics, Law, His­tory and Civ­i­liza­tion, and the Polit­i­cal and Social Sci­ences.

    Its full-​time teach­ing staff, fel­lows and researchers are recruited from all over Europe and beyond. The EUI wel­comes researchers who wish to study for the Institute’s doc­tor­ate (Ph.D. four years), or for the one-​year Mas­ters pro­gramme (LL.M.) in Law.

    The EUI offers fel­low­ships for post­doc­toral appli­cants (Jean Mon­net and Max Weber fel­low­ships) as well as for dis­tin­guished schol­ars (Fer­nand Braudel fellowships).

    As a host insti­tu­tion, the EUI wel­comes Marie Curie Fel­lows and Euro­pean Research Coun­cil grantees.

    • The EUI offers one of the world’s largest doc­toral and post­doc­toral pro­grammes in the social sciences
    • It hosts an inter­na­tional com­mu­nity of over 1,000 schol­ars from more than 60 countries
    • It is proud of its high com­ple­tion rate: 90% of researchers com­plete their doc­tor­ate in four years
    • It offers excel­lent career prospects for its researchers: 65% in acad­e­mia, 15% in inter­na­tional orga­ni­za­tions, 20% in the pri­vate sec­tor and NGOs
    • At the EUI researchers have time to focus fully on research, with grants of up to four years from EU Mem­bers States and other states
    • It offers joint exchange pro­grammes with major North Amer­i­can and Euro­pean universities
