PONT “Working Europe Seminar” 2: Climate, Energy and Environment Policy

PONT-150x150TEPSA will organise its second Working Europe Seminar on March 27-31 2017 in the framework of its ERASMUS+/Jean Monnet project PONT (Professional Training on EU Affairs).

During a 5-day seminar in Brussels, at the heart of EU politics, students will enjoy first-hand insights from researchers, EU practitioners and officials on current top priorities of the EU policies and politics in the Climate, Energy and Environment fields. The completion of the internal energy market as well as actions against climate change is on top of the EU’s strategic agenda. Discussions with practitioners from the field will complement the readings students are expected to prepare before the start of the course. Visits to the European institutions and civil society organization will also provide the seminar with added value.

Besides master’s students from law, economics and political sciences, this seminar will be of particular interests for students from engineering and environmental studies who will be able to gain insights into the political realities in energy policy and at the same time contribute through fruitful practical insights from their disciplines.

PONT is a project that aims to provide a bridge connecting young academics and EU practitioners, in order to improve the employability of young researchers.  A Working Seminar on Asylum and Migration Policies and a Career Skills Training have already been held throughout 2016.

Further information about the application procedure for this PONT Working Europe Seminar will be available on TEPSA’s website in January 2017.
