Final year of the LISBOAN project

ecThree years after its establishment, the active work of LISBOAN ended on 30 September 2013. LISBOAN, an Erasmus Academic Network funded with support from the EU’s Lifelong Learning Programme, aimed to contribute to the establishment of a European research area in the field of integration studies. With the EU’s revised legal basis – the Treaty of Lisbon – as a common point of departure, the project linked researchers from 68 institutions and various academic backgrounds (political science, law, economics and history) in order to spread knowledge and best practices in both research and teaching. Network partners held 16 thematic workshops, contributed to an annual report and a guest lecture series and arranged three PhD schools. Moreover, they met at three annual conferences in Brussels which were organised jointly by TEPSA and the University of Cologne.
