EUCOPAS - Debating the European Union in Cologne and Paris

EUCOPAS is a Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence consisting of the Jean Monnet Chair, Prof. Wessels, University of Cologne and the Jean Monnet Chair in European Union Law and Political Science at Sciences Po, Paris.

The programme runs from September 2015 to August 2018.

EUCOPAS’ objective is to promote and mainstream EU-related key subjects in different disciplines and to reach out to the wider public. It brings together young and experienced researchers as well as students and the general public who have not yet been in regular contact with EU-related topics. It provides students with practical insights into the EU-system in order to enhance their academic skills and their employability.

The objectives will be achieved by establishing a research-based teaching programme comprising conferences, PhD workshops, MA summer schools and public lectures.
