Every year, the EIB Institute hosts the EIB Summer School with the aim to:
- provide Master’s students with first hand insights about the core activities and responsibilities of the EIB Group
- build and strengthen a network of current and future stakeholders of the EIB Group through its alumni programme
The Summer School addresses an interdisciplinary and international group of Master’s students from selected partner universities. Participants engage in lectures, seminars, group discussions and case studies to gain a deep understanding of the mission and impact of the EIB Group and how it answers current challenges of the EU and beyond.
Participants have the unique opportunity to get the faculty’s insider view on what it means to be part of the EIB Group and how staff members apply theoretical concepts to very practical challenges of global impact.
The Summer School invites a group of 70 Master’s students to join a 10 day programme – 3 participants will be selected by UW. Students cannot apply directly. The selection proces is fully managed by the International Relations Office.
Through their lectures, EIB staff members provide insights on how the EIB Group answers the challenges facing the EU:
- acting in the financial market as a key global player in fighting climate change
- analysing and managing risks relevant to funding green investment projects
- assessing investment projects from a technical, economic, legal and compliance standpoint
- defining strategies for the promotion of the European Green Deal
The academic part includes 4-5 hours per day. Beside the curricular activities, participants will collaborate in small multi disciplinary working groups on an assignment that they will present to a jury and their peers on the last Friday of the Summer School. The programme concludes with a festive dinner and celebration in one of Luxembourg’s castles and an (optional) alumni gathering over the weekend.
