On 19-22 November, TEPSA organised the EU@Work Seminar on EU Affairs in Brussels, at the heart of EU politics.
Funded by the Europe for Citizens programme of the European Commission, this 4-day seminar offered 16 excellent undergraduate students (Bachelor students and recent graduates, high-school students and recent graduates) an opportunity to gain first-hand insights from researchers, EU practitioners, policymakers and officials on the role and functioning of EU institutions and on the state of play of the main EU policies.
The seminar was organised under the academic lead of Dr Ilke Toygür (Analyst at the Elcano Royal Institute and Adjunct Professor at the University Carlos III of Madrid) and combined expert lectures and visits of key EU institutions, think tanks and civil society organisations.
