CEPS meets academia: A European module for MA students

The Integrated Programme in European Policy Studies (IPEPS), a new CEPS project offering a broad range of educational activities to Masters-level students, was inaugurated in September with the Summer School dedicated to “An Introduction to EU Economic and Financial Governance”. Some 19 students – each enrolled in Masters-degree programmes in various universities throughout Europe – actively participated in a full week of lectures, discussion groups and role-playing exercises. CEPS researchers led the activities, complemented by the intervention of officials from the EU institutions and private-sector practitioners. Seven universities (arrayed below) are active partners in the project and CEPS is in discussions with a few other institutions that have expressed an interest in joining us. The objective is to equip students with in-depth learning of real-life EU policy issues and provide them with original insights and effective tools for understanding the functioning of the European Union.

The next selection of students will take place in June and July 2017, with a full eight-week module on a wide range of EU policy areas. More information is available at https://www.ceps.eu/content/ipeps-master-module-eu-policies

IPEPS is co-funded by the Jean Monnet Action (European Commission - Erasmus +). CEPS has enlisted the active participation of the following universities in organising the programme:
