Call for applications: TEPSA’s ‘Working Europe seminar’ on EU energy, environment and climate policy


From the 27th to the 31st of March 2017, TEPSA will organise its second Working Europe seminar on EU energy, environment and climate policy for Master’s students and Master’s graduates, in Brussels.

Co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union, this 5-day seminar, organised within the framework of PONT, will offer 20 participants from different national and disciplinary backgrounds the opportunity to gain first-hand insights from high-level professionals from EU institutions, academia, civil society and the private sector on the current top priorities and trends of EU policy and politics in the fields of energy, climate and the environment. Through a series of lectures, meetings and visits to EU institutions and Brussels-based organisations, participants will be able to improve their knowledge of EU policy, enhance their analytical and argumentative skills, start building their network and increase their employability.

This seminar is open to students in law, social sciences (e.g. European affairs, politics, geography, economics) and natural sciences (e.g. engineering, environmental sciences). The deadline for applying is 20 February 2017. The participation fee is €200, and travel costs will be reimbursed up to €250.
