The European University Institute (EUI) is the leading institute in Europe dedicated to social sciences and humanities. Founded in 1972 by the six original members of the then European Communities, the EUI has earned a reputation as a transnational hub of research and higher learning. From the beginning, the EUI community mobilised to take part in key debates about the ongoing Covid-19 crisis through events, research activities and public engagement.

There is the Robert Schuman Center for Advanced Studies and the Max Weber Post-doctoral Program. Finally and most recent although by no means the least is the School of Transnational Governance.
