EUI GymThe “Body, Brain and Boosting Board” is an umbrella term for activities run by members of the EUI for the benefit of the community.

Coined by an, an Academic Service staff member who was awarded a bottle of champagne for their trouble, it acts as facilitator to aid the establishment and development of clubs. These include cultural activities,  and sports. The number of clubs varies from year to year depending on the researchers who are willing to run them.

4B also provides small amounts of funding to groups to help them with their regular underlying costs. It has contacts with clubs in and around Florence if a particular activity cannot take place on campus and can help arrange discounts on bookings of specialist facilities.

If anyone is interested in setting up a new club the first port of call should be Linda Gilbert who can help reach out to potential new members.
