EIB Summer School 2023 – Exploring the EU Climate Bank
21 marca 2023

27 June – 7 July 2023 – Luxembourg

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.

CENTRAL: Blended Intensive Programme for PhD Students
28 września 2022

BIP for PhD. Students – Call for proposals  – “Central Europe: What unites and divides us” 21-25 November 22

I. General information

The CENTRAL Network primarily promotes cooperation in the fields of teaching, research and support for young researchers. In connection with the opening of the second stage of the cooperation, CENTRAL announces a special topic followed by further activities. Each of these topics has had wider social or political importance, especially within the context of Central Europe. The goal for academics or PhD. students from different countries, backgrounds and areas of study is to come up with multilateral ideas and solutions. The theme is “Central Europe: What unites and divides us”. The purpose of the meeting is to connect senior academics with Pd.D. students and together try to discuss the problems of Central Europe – specifically what unites or divides us. The whole event will be divided into six sessions led by selected academics. They will start with a lecture on the topic. This will be followed by a workshop in which each student will have to give a paper of about 15 minutes, followed by a debate moderated by the selected academic.

The CENTRAL BIP for PhD. students aims to bring PhD. students and selected senior academics from the CENTRAL member universities together. A virtual meeting of all participants will take place approximately two weeks before the workshop. The content will include a lecture by a leading academic on the topic of Central Europe. It will be an overall reflection on Central Europe, which should still inspire students for further discussions in their personal encounters. At the end of the lecture, the topic can be further developed in the discussion and students can clarify the main ideas for their presentation.

The main workload for students will be preparing a 15 minute paper to present in a face-to-face session. At the same time, they will have to answer questions that will arise from the debate of all present at the event under the guidance of the academic. As this will be a general question on the development, history and present of Central Europe, the student should have the knowledge and competence to place their paper in a more general context. The quality of presentations and active participation during the debate will also be evaluated. The evaluation will be carried out by the participating academics.
