InDivEU – Integrating Diversity in the European Union

Under the lead of the European University Institute (EUI) and ETH Zurich (Switzerland), TEPSA has recently been awarded a Horizon 2020 project on ‘Integrating Diversity in the European Union (InDivEU)’ which will run from January 2019 for three years. InDivEU brings together a consortium of some of Europe’s foremost research universities and outstanding scholars of Differentiated Integration in order to create comprehensive knowledge base on differentiated integration that will be of direct relevance to Europe’s policy makers.

While two TEPSA members (EUI and ETH Zürich) have a lead role in the consortium and TEPSA will play an active role in the dissemination and exploitation of project results, up to 10 TEPSA Members will be organising targeted policy events at member state level. These events will include meetings with members of national parliaments’ EU Affairs committees, Policy Dialogues in selected seats of government at the edges of the EU and Stakeholder Forums in order to discuss options for differentiated integration and consult various scenarios with academics, policy-makers and civil society organisations. A final conference of the project will take place in Brussels.

The work of InDivEU will be directly relevant to the work of the AFCO Committee in the EP, the European Commission services, Prime Ministers’ offices, European Affairs Committees of national parliaments and a range of civil society organisations.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 822304.
