New challenges for our Dean!

We are delighted to hea that our Dean Ioannis Panoussis had been appointed Vice-Rector in charge of International Development at the Institut Catholique de Lille by Patrick Scauflaire, Chairman-Rector of the Université Catholique de Lille.

The arrival of Ioannis Panoussis in this role is an important step in his many years of commitment to the University.

After he obtained his PhD in international and European law, Ioannis joined the Faculty of Law in 2006 as a Senior Lecturer at the Universités Catholiques. His mission was to work on several multilingual and multicultural courses, and so he launched several Bachelors and Masters in International & European Law. A year later, he was appointed assistant to the Dean in charge of the Faculty’s international development. In 2014, he was elected Dean of the Faculty of Law and has made international aspect a main goal of his successive mandates. Finally, he was entrusted with the task of coordinating the internationalisation of the faculties of the Université Catholique de Lille by becoming the International Development Delegate.

The international transformation of the Faculty of Law is an undeniable success: the creation of IELS (the International and European Law School), new programmes, new partnerships with many Faculties around the world, co-diplomation with foreign partner universities, a constantly-growing network of visiting professors... Thanks to this great international commitment of the teaching and administrative teams, students are now studying at a Faculty that is open to the world. This internationalisation is being built day by day and offers new opportunities to our future lawyers.

His new role will enable him to contribute to the reputation of our University and consolidate our position as a European and international player. This is a major mission for the Institut Catholique de Lille as part of its Vision 2030 project.

We would like to congratulate him and wish him every success in his new role!
