CEPS Summer School 2018

on the Economic and Financial Governance in the EU



Applications deadline: Monday, 16 July 2018

Course overview

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.

Topics Covered

  • Architecture of EU economic governance
  • Monetary policy, EU budget and structural reforms
  • Financial governance architecture: Banking Union, Capital Markets Union and Macro prudential policy
  • Policy implications of major trends in finance (digitalisation, Brexit)


Why should you participate??

As a renowned independent think-tank with world-class researchers covering all policy areas of the EU, CEPS endeavours to strengthen the quality of policy debates by deepening the knowledge about EU governance and policies among representatives in the member states, the private sector and academia. The week-long programme is both intellectually stimulating and challenging. All students who successfully complete the programme will receive a Certificate of Participation.

The ideal candidates for the Summer School are academics, civil servants from EU institutions, national ministries, local or regional government agencies, central banks and professionals from the private sector who are interested in learning about real-life economic and financial policy issues within the EMU.
