Overview

Welcome from the Directors

Bryce Evans Lille Institute Dr Ioannis Panoussis

In the current global climate, the fostering of cross-border academic collaboration is important.

That is why a firm Anglo-French academic alliance is so unusual and significant.

In 2016 Liverpool Hope University and l’Université Catholique de Lille decided to form a strategic alliance around teaching and research. Central to this alliance is the development of a European Institute. This body aims to provide a framework for cross-disciplinary research projects, publications, joint masters degrees and co-supervision of PhD students.

This website provides information on how the European Institute functions, what we are achieving together and what we will achieve in the future.

History teaches us that European cooperation is essential in achieving peace, growth and progress; it is in this spirit that the Institut Européen/European Institute operates and in this spirit that we as educators, students and citizens thrive.

Dr Bryce Evans and Dr Ioannis Panoussis

Directors of the Institut Européen/European Institute

 

Aims of the partnership

In June 2016 Liverpool Hope University and l’Université Catholique de Lille signed a strategic roadmap detailing their plans for joint collaboration around research, teaching, and development of joint degree programmes to 2019 and beyond.  

The Roadmap for Strategic Alliance was signed by the two Rectors, Professor Gerald Pillay and Professor Pierre Giorgini in Lille. The two universities have already embarked on a student and staff exchange programme. 

Aims of the Institute 

  • Supporting bilateral staff collaboration (Erasmus exchange and research)
  • Fostering student exchange
  • Developing research collaboration
  • Promoting public engagement
  • Building towards joint degree programmes where appropriate

The investment in this partnership by both universities steps up strategic research collaboration and aims to have a significant impact in the UK, France and across Europe.

The Institute is embedded within eight academic projects involving a wide array of disciplines - English language and literature, business, law, environmental studies, politics and international relations, education, health sciences, psychology, theology and philosophy.

Fostering new, intellectually and culturally enriching learning opportunities for students is high on the agenda of both universities. It is hoped that studying abroad, gaining work experience and volunteering will be significantly enhanced by the new agreement.
