Student Research Projects

Since 2021, the Nanovic Institute has provided opportunities for undergraduate students to participate in research projects that are designed by the Institute and mentored by faculty and graduate students, at the University of Notre Dame and beyond. These projects, which typically take place during winter and summer breaks, help students develop their skills in conducting research, curating a public-facing project, and learning more about a specific topic that deepens their understanding of Europe.

These student research projects, on topics from comparative healthcare in Europe to art and media as sites for protest and resistance, are designed and delivered with a broad public audience in mind. Students have contributed to the creation of research papers, podcasts, infographics, and digital exhibitions. In this way, Nanovic’s student research projects contribute to the institute’s mission to bring Europe to the Notre Dame community.

Upcoming student research opportunities will be advertised on the Nanovic website. Students who would like to find out more about these projects may contact Abby Lewis, director of undergraduate studies.
