Cross-Border Interdisciplinary Workshops

on EU Integration

Presentation of Final Thesis or Seminar Papers

 

Selected students from the three Universities – Bolzano/Bozen, Innsbruck and Trento -, will have the occasion to present and discuss the results of their final thesis or their seminar papers on issues related to EU integration with their peers and their supervisors as volunteers in a cross-border and inter-disciplinary workshop.

 

The first workshop was held in Trento (26-27 November 2015),              
the second workshop will be held in Innsbruck on 19-20 May 2016;
students from UniBZ will join.

 

Objectives

The workshops shall bring together and connect students and teachers from the three Universities in the Euroregion offering a unique opportunity for discussing topics related to European integration among peers and supervisors from different Universities and with different disciplinary background; the regional and subnational dimension as well as civil society issues will be particularly important.

The discussion in the workshops shall broaden the views of participants who have already intensively worked on their final thesis or on their seminar papers and also allow for networking.

 

Method

The selected students shall present their research to peers and supervisors, thus receiving additional critical input for their papers or their presentations in the final examination.

The workshop format will favour comments and discussion by fellow students and teachers.

The working language is English.
