‘Rethinking the European Union sixty years after the Treaty of Rome” is the leading theme for the V edition of the Renzo Imbeni Summer School, being held from 8th to 12th September 2017 in Modena (Italy), which provides an opportunity of advanced training aimed at Master’s graduate or graduating students on the European Union and its democratic consolidation process.

With this Summer School, the City of Modena wants to honour the memory of Renzo Imbeni, distinguished citizen of Modena and Vice-President of the European Parliament from 1994 to 2004.

The advanced training on EU issues is promoted by the City of Modena together with the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Fondazione Collegio San Carlo, with the financial support of Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Modena.

The 2017 edition is organized in partnership with the Italian Council of the European Movement, the Institute of International Affairs and the Turin Center for Studies on Federalism. It is held under the High Patronage of the European Parliament, the patronage of the European Commission Representation in Italy and the Emilia-Romagna Region.

The 30 participants will have the chance to meet high-profile figures from the worlds of politics and institutions, from the academic field, from important European think tanks and from varied expressions of civil society.

At the end of the course, two grants of € 5,000 each will be awarded for a traineeship in the European Parliament in Brussels during the first semester of 2018.

Deadline: 28 April 2017 by 12pm
