The Jean Monnet chair of Prof Wessels at the University of Cologne was selected by the European Commission to carry out a new Jean Monnet Project. The ‘SUMMIT’-project (Studying the European Council – Mastering and Disseminating Knowledge about a Key Institution) is dedicated to the European Council, and aims to contribute to the promotion of European Union studies by providing the latest research-based knowledge about this key institution.
The broad range of activities and products of SUMMIT includes 16 academic conferences, roundtables and seminars in various European cities as well as the output of innovative learning material and academic articles.
The project’s lifetime is from September 2015 to February 2017. Further information on the project will shortly be available at the chair’s (www.jeanmonnetchair.uni-koeln.de) and at the project’s websites.
