Original insights and tools to better understand the European Union

CEPS Academy

Original insights and tools to better understand the European Union

Established in 2015, CEPS Academy offers graduate and post-graduate training and other educational activities on a wide range of EU policy areas. The mission of the CEPS Academy is to equip both students and professionals with original insights and tools to better understand the European Union. Lectures, open discussions and interactive sessions with academics, practitioners and officials will stimulate interest in EU policy-making and encourage fresh thinking among the younger generation of Europeans who will shape and lead the EU in the future. Below are our current activities.


Executive Training, in partnership with the EUI School of Transnational Governance (STG)

CEPS has launched a partnership with the EUI School of Transnational Governance (STG) to organise a series of Executive Training seminars at CEPS in Brussels. Based within the European University Institute in Florence, the School brings the worlds of academia and policy-making together in an effort to navigate a context, both inside and outside Europe, where policy-making increasingly transcends national borders.


CEPS Summer School for young professionals and academics

The CEPS Summer School offers a unique setting in which participants can deepen their understanding of the functioning of the EU, with a special focus on the economic and financial governance framework. This theme encompasses the rationale and interests underpinning the ongoing policy debate, market mechanisms at work and emerging future challenges.

The classes extend over six days in early September. Each day students attend lectures, discussion groups or technical seminars led by our in-house experts, including Daniel Gros and Cinzia Alcidi. These sessions are complemented by seminars and discussions with EU officials and policymakers. Learning is reinforced by visits to the EU institutions and stimulating group interactions, in which participants can share their views and experience, making the week both inspiring and fun.

Previous editions: 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016
