Europaeum Scholars Programme

Are you are interested in shaping the future of Europe? If so, and if you are a doctoral candidate in the Humanities or Social Sciences in the Europaeum network, whose research relates to the study of Europe (broadly defined) then this could be the programme for you. The Europaeum Scholars Programme offers a unique opportunity to be part of a network of some of the brightest people of your generation. You will be able to connect your doctoral research with the policy world, gain insights into the complexity of policymaking and learn how to work as a team (and what leading a team involves). European Scholars are people who “think for themselves, but not just of themselves” with the capacity and the desire to create a better future for Europe. They combine academic excellence with a clear commitment to promoting the public good. Highly motivated, well organised and with a strong academic track record they have a strong interest in connecting the lessons that can be learned from academic research to the public arena.

The Europaeum Scholars Programme is a world-class training programme. Scholars attend eight modules, taken over two years, alongside their existing doctoral studies. Being multi-locational and multi-institutional the programme draws upon the resources of all 18 of the Europaeum university members. Talks and training are provided by Europaeum affiliated academics together with a wide range of external experts and leading thinkers. Scholars visit key European and international institutions and learn about how they function in conversation with practitioners and policymakers. There are opportunities to directly engage with people facing some of the most difficult circumstances in contemporary society. And Scholars design, develop and deliver their own policy-related project. By the end, you will emerge with the knowledge and a set of skills and contacts equal to any group anywhere.
