PROTEUS Project Wins Cologne University Award for Outstanding Teaching

ProteusPROTEUS, a joint teaching project of the Jean Monnet Chairs of Prof. Hobe (Law) and Prof. Wessels (Politics) at the University of Cologne in the field of EU studies (the picture includes Wolfgang Wessels, Mirja Schröder and Wulf Reiners) receives the 2013 award for outstanding teaching of the University of Cologne. PROTEUS combines an intensive seminar on an advanced level with an international summer school and simulation exercise with participants from all over Europe. Following its international, interdisciplinary and innovative teaching approach, PROTEUS not only responds to the rising demand for comprehensive and applied knowledge of today’s students in EU affairs, it also strengthens collaboration across faculties and contributes to the internationalisation of the University of Cologne. Since 2011 the seminar has been carried out in co-operation with the THESEUS summer school in Brussels, co-organised by TEPSA.
