The EP to Campus Programme allows universities to benefit from the expertise and experience of former Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) who share their insights into how the EU institutions really work and into the factors that shape EU decision-making.
|This year, the FMA is organising in cooperation with the Historical Archives of the European Union (HAEU) and the INDIRE Erasmus+ programme of the European Commission the high-level hybrid conference ‘Can the EU learn from experience’ on Friday 16 June 2023 in the Sala del Consiglio, Villa Salviati (Firenze) and online via Zoom.
This conference examines three concrete programmes developed to increase the understanding and participation of young people in Europe.
In three separate panels, contributors will describe collaborative initiatives across the institutions, and experiences teaching and learning about Europe at the primary, secondary, and university levels and beyond.
Any university can invite a former MEP, when organising a conference, a seminar or a tutorial, by filling in our application form. For that purpose, our guidelines for an EP to Campus visit and for an EP to Campus webinar will help you. The FMA will match the requirements of the university to the available former MEPs, using a detailed database containing their areas of expertise. Then, the FMA proposes a shortlist of matched former MEPs to the university, from which the university can choose. For further information please consult the (printable) EP to Campus leaflet and for all financial aspects, please visit the financing webpage.
Given the current global situation, the EP to Campus programmes can be organized online, on campus or in a hybrid manner – on the condition of safety for all.
