The European University Institute is an international centre for doctorate and post-doctorate studies and research, situated in the Tuscan hills and was founded 40 years ago by the six founding members of the then European Communities. Since that moment, the institution managed to earn a reputation as a leading international academic institution with a European focus.

The university has four departments – Economics, History and Civilization, Law, and Political and Social Sciences and host scholars from more than 60 countries. Furthermore, the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies (RSCAS) focuses on inter-disciplinary, comparative and policy research on the major issues affecting European societies, while the Max Weber Programme for Post-doctoral Studies prepares fellows for a career in academia.

The EUI’s distinctly international environment offers unique academic training, enriches the intellectual experience and provides exceptional opportunities for academics across disciplines and borders. The departments and centers are housed in 14 historic buildings scattered about the hillside which have undergone extensive renovation in recent years.
