Since its establishment 40 years ago by the six founding members of the then European co-leading international academic institution with a European focus.
The EUI is one of the most culturally diverse doctoral schools anywhere in the world. 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.
