Centre for European Integration Research (EIF)


Our Mission:

The Centre for European Integration Research (EIF) is dedicated to
research and teaching in the field of European integration.

Our special emphasis is on the policies of the European Union and on their comparison. This includes, for example: digitalisation-related policies (Gerda Falkner and four new research group members to join 2020/21); foreign, security, and defence policy (Patrick Müller); border control, energy, and climate change policies (Peter Slominski); trade policy and interregionalism (Katharina Meissner); economic and monetary integration (Magnus Schoeller); and neighbourhood and migration policies (Federica Zardo).


Originally, EIF was the „Institut für Europäische Integrationsforschung“ (EIF) within the Austrian Academy of Sciences. After moving into the University of Vienna in 2012, EIF was initially a Research Platform connecting four different Departments of the University. In 2019, EIF became a Research Centre within the Department of Political Science of the University of Vienna.
