The Europaeum organises workshops, seminars, conferences and debates in cooperation with the members of the network.

These are all open to any student currently enrolled at one of the member universities whose main focus of study lies in the Humanities or Social Sciences, via a rigorous application & selection process.

Events are offered at no cost to participants and aim to involve students as much as possible in the form of an academic contribution, such as a paper presentation or as a discussant. Speakers include academics from inside and outside the network, policymakers and other high-level external experts whose expertise is relevant to the theme of the event.

Events & Activities Archive

Europaeum Scholars Programme

Our flagship programme is a two-year policy and leadership course for a select few of the brightest doctoral students within the Europaeum network. Taken alongside a doctorate, it has eight modules, including seminars with leading academics and practitioners, professional skills training, and significant team activity (multidisciplinary groups work on how to “make Europe a better place”).

Spring Schools

The Europaeum Spring School usually takes place in Oxford in April and brings together inspiring speakers, students from the network, as well as some of those enrolled in one of the Europaeum joint MAs. The focus is on ‘Europe in the World – the World in Europe’, a broad theme that lends itself to a colourful palette of papers across the disciplines and encourages maximum engagement through daily discussion groups.

Summer Schools

The Europaeum Summer School is a week-long annual flagship event for graduates to debate current issues. It usually takes place at one of the member universities, with a theme initiated by a particular local expertise or academic strength. Students are invited to give papers, join lively discussion groups, and take part in extra-curricular cultural elements of the programme.

Winter Schools

Winter Schools are occasional workshops following the initiative of member institutions who want to draw on a particular local strength or academic focus. Themes are interdisciplinary and can be wide ranging, as is evidenced by the first Europaeum Winter School (2022) in Barcelona on Planetary Wellbeing.


In addition to the Europaeum supporting existing initiatives at member universities, such as one-day conferences to which a few selected Europaeum students are added, the Europaeum organises high-level conferences in cooperation with partners. Themes differ, depending on the event, but align with the three Europaeum themes: European History & Culture, European Policy-Making, European Liberal Democracy and Citizen Engagement.

Seminars, Colloquia & Lectures

In addition to the Spring Seminar for the MA European History & Civilisation students in Oxford, an annual Policy Seminar takes place in Brussels or Luxembourg, in close collaboration with EU institutions. The annual Classics Colloquium brings together presentations on a topic chosen by a leading academic in the network, not being necessarily exclusive to Classicists. Occasionally, distinguished speakers are invited to deliver lectures or webinars on relevant European topics.

Joint Degrees

Three Europaeum joint degrees, awarded by member universities, give students the opportunity to spend study time at different universities during their enrolment. These are exciting international opportunities which are unique to the Europaeum and foster the sense of a connected Europe.

Bursaries & Exchanges

The Europaeum supports a small number of exchanges every year, with the generous help and cooperation of selected member universities and external donors. Currently, these opportunities exist for students from Geneva, Helsinki, Oxford and Prague.
