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, and civil society on the current top priorities and trends of EU policy and politics in the field of trade. 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 and graduates in Law and Social Sciences (e.g. Political Science, European Studies, International Relations, Economics, Development Studies…). The participation fee is €200, and participants’ travel and accommodation costs will be reimbursed up to €250.
Applications will close on 10 December 2017 (midnight).
