1. The Organisation
The European University Institute (EUI) is an academic institution set up in 1972 by the then Member States of the European Union, providing doctoral training in Law, Economics, History and Civilisation and Political and Social Sciences with special reference to Europe. In addition to the departments, the Institute includes the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies (RSCAS), which focuses on inter-disciplinary, comparative and policy research, the Max Weber Programme for Post-doctoral Studies, which prepares fellows for a career in academia, and the School of Transnational Governance, which sets out to study, debate and teach matters pertaining to governance beyond the State. The Institute also hosts the Historical Archives of the European Union. The EUI is not an EU Institution or body, but an inter-governmental organization, funded directly by the signatory states, partly by the European Commission and to some extent through external funding. The EUI provides a multinational work environment in an intellectually stimulating atmosphere.
The Academic Service is in charge of providing support, including monitoring and assessment, to the EUI’s research and teaching activities. The Academic Service oversees and supports the application, selection, and admission processes of master students, early career researchers (i.e. doctoral and postdoctoral fellows), fellows, academic assistants and professors.
The Academic Service collaborates with national and international funding authorities and academic and research institutions in the world.
The Academic Service follows and administers the progress of all academic programmes at the EUI (Master, Ph.D., postdoctoral) in close collaboration with the EUI Academic Units, the Dean of Graduate Studies, and the Dean of Postdoctoral Studies. It also provides support for research proposals in collaboration with the Dean of Research.
It offers a wide range of academic skills and professional development courses and career advice to early career researchers; offers language courses; counselling and wellbeing services and supports a wide range of extracurricular activities.
The Academic Service is also responsible for the administration of some Governing Bodies such as the Academic Council and Research Council, and academic committees of the EUI.
