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.



The Institute oversees and facilitates cooperation in the following areas:

  • Research collaboration
  • Teaching collaboration
  • Student exchanges
  • Joint Masters programmes

Wednesday 11 October 2017

The annual dinner of Liverpool Consular Corps was held at Hope, featuring representatives from across the globe.

Consuls from countries including, Romania, Hungary and Italy gathered at the University for the Black Tie event, which celebrates one of the oldest consular groups in the world.

Vice-Chancellor and Rector of Liverpool Hope University Professor Gerald Pillay addressed the attendees, discussing the importance of European collaboration and the internationalist perspective of the University.

He explained how in 2016, against the backdrop of Brexit, Hope was cementing its continental links through the creation of the European Institute.

Associate Professor Bryce Evans, Director of the European Institute, said: “Hosting the dinner provided the opportunity to foster stronger links between the University and the consular corps, including placements and internships for students. We are also keen to more closely involve the corps in the work of the European institute, through guest lectures and co-design.”

According to Liverpool Consular Corps, more than 40 countries at one time had consuls in Liverpool, but now the emphasis is on honorary consuls. These conduct strong programmes of contacts with their nationals, local and regional authorities, organise seminars and conferences and represent their Governments at special events.

 



 

Erasmus exchange sees Professor Galina Paramei teach at l'Université Catholique de Lille

Psychology Professor Galina Paramei delivered a series of lectures during a recent Erasmus exchange trip to l'Université Catholique de Lille.

The exchange was arranged under the Teaching Mobility Scheme established between the Departments of Psychology at both institutions.

Professor Paramei delivered three lectures on the Bilingual Mind, Research Methods: Experimental Design in Psychological Studies and the Bilingual Mind and Brain.

She said: “The highlight of my teaching experience was the high attendance rate and the genuine interest and engagement of the students. In particular, my Research Methods lecture that took place between 8-10 am, was attended by almost all students of the first year – despite the early hour. Also, I was told that many of the students are not very proficient in English, but their attention during the two hours was exceptional.”

As well as delivering teaching sessions, Professor Paramei used the trip to familiarise herself with the Lille Psychology Department’s curriculum and explored the academic research specialisms for potential future collaborations.

Speaking about the partnership between Liverpool Hope and Lille, Professor Paramei said: “The Department in Lille has expertise in Work Psychology, which - in teaching - could complement/be included in our curriculum in Applied Psychology. In research, I could envisage a collaboration between Dr Schoenenberger, who predominantly pursues qualitative research, with a new member of Hope’s Psychology team Dr Kim Gordon.

“Another potentially promising link is in Clinical Neuropsychology, with Dr Bruno Lenne, a neuropsychologist who uses EEG, works in a neurological hospital, and whose research interests are in clinical studies, including multiple sclerosis and addiction.”

Liverpool Hope University and l’Université Catholique de Lille recently signed a strategic roadmap detailing plans for collaboration around research, teaching, and development of joint degree programmes over the next three years and beyond.

Central to the strategic alliance is the development of a Pan–European Institute, which aims to provide a framework for cross-disciplinary research projects, publications, joint masters degrees and co-supervision of PhD students. 



 Visit by Michael Boyle, Creative Industries Manager, to Université Catholique de Lille (16-18 May 2017)

 


Michael's visit was aimed at investigating areas of potential collaboration between Liverpool Hope University and the Université Catholique de Lille through media-based pedagogy and professional practices.  During the course of his visit, Michael met with Nazek Maalouli-Odent (International Relations Manager), Apolline Delplanque (Communication Coordinator, Medialab), Camille Tombret (radio station producer) as well as Pierre Giorgini (Rector and University President), Jean-Charles Caillez (Vice-President, Innovation), David Fremy (Director, TV Medialab) and Suzanne Bray (Professor, British Literature and Civilisation).



Inaugural distinguished Guest Lecture 2017 - Brexit and the French ‌Diaspora

 

For the inaugural distinguished guest lecture of its 2017 series, and to mark International Women's Day, the European Institute at Liverpool Hope University hosted Brexit and the French Diaspora, a reception followed by a talk by Mrs Patricia Connell, Déléguée Consulaire.
 
Mrs Connell addressed the phrase "Brexit means Brexit", asking what does it really mean? She went on to explain how Brexit is already affecting the 3.3 million Europeans living here and the 1.5 million British citizens living in the EU.

Patricia Connell, an elected consular delegate who represents the French community in the UK, addressed these questions as well as talking about her life and work in the UK. A centre-right candidate (UDI) in the French parliamentary elections in June this year, her career has been spent in marketing and communications, with senior roles in both global manufacturing groups and in pan-European agencies. She has been actively engaged in the promotion of French companies, products and charitable associations for the last 20 years and is also currently the CEO of an bi-lingual online magazine for Francophones and Francophiles. In response to the uncertainty created for the French community by the Brexit vote she has organised meetings across the UK and Ireland to offer practical help and assistance to her fellow French citizens.

The lecture was attended by staff, students and the public; before the address Mrs Connell was welcomed to Hope by Vice Chancellor and Rector Professor Gerald Pillay.
