The EP to Campus Programme allows universities to benefit from the expertise and experience of former Members of the European Parliament who share their insights into how the EU institutions really work and into the factors that shape EU decision-making.

Last year we celebrated the 15th Anniversary of the EP to Campus programme with a special event, live-streamed from the European Parliament in Brussels.

The EP to Campus process

The initiative to invite a former MEP to a university originates from the university itself, when organising a conference, a seminar or a tutorial. The university is required to fill in our application form . For that purpose, our guidelines will help you. Then, the FMA will aim to match the requirements of the university to the available FMA members, exploiting a database which contains details on all areas of expertise of any former MEPs. As a result, the FMA proposes a shortlist of matched former MEPs to the university, from which the university can choose. The university has the final responsibility in deciding on the former MEP. That of course includes the right to reject all the proposed candidates whom you are not happy with.

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.

For the financial aspects, see financing. You can consult and print the EP to Campus leaflet in English and French.
