To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills what involvement his Department has with the work of the European University Institute; and if he will make a statement. (161887)

Officials from my Department act as members of the High Council (governing body) of the European University Institute (EUI) in Florence and of its budgetary committee. These bodies generally meet twice each year. The presidency of the EUI rotates on an annual basis and from April 2008 the UK will chair these meetings.
