The future of EU citizenship

26-28 April 2017, Brussels

Could the citizenship rights enjoyed by EU citizens be under threat?

Are Europeans fully aware of their citizenship rights - and using them to full effect?

In the 21st Century, what does it really mean to be a Citizen of the EU?

It’s twenty years since the Maastricht Treaty introduced the idea of EU citizenship – but that citizenship is now under pressure as never before.

A 4-year major research project - bEUcitizen - All Rights Reserved? Barriers towards EUropean CITIZENship – has explored these challenges and can now reveal how best to respond to them.

The project’s final conference will be held at the Residence Palace, 175 rue de la Loi, 1048 Brussels on 26-28th April 2017.

In this project 11 European Universities collaborate with the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre in a consortium of experienced researchers in the field of macro- and financial economics, supported by an advisory board of influential academics of the highest worldwide reputation and policy makers at central banks and finance ministries.

The three-year project (2014-2017) is funded by the European Union and brings together different lines of research to systematically develop new behavioural and institutional model building blocks, to integrate such features in policy-focused models and to make use of these models in a new framework for policy evaluation.

4th UNI-SET Energy Clustering Event (27-28/03/2017) will focus on sustainable transport and CCSU

27-28 March 2017, London, United Kingdom

The event intends to stimulate discussion among university leaders on the development of innovative and multidisciplinary research and education programmes. The conference will also offer specific opportunities for “clustering” knowledge, in which research and education leaders from different disciplines will present their views on the specific priorities of the SET-Plan.

The event is the fourth of the series of six events aiming to mobilise Europe’s university community in the field of energy. It carries forward the activities outlined in the “Roadmap for European Universities in Energy” published in December 2016.

Through the event, participants will also have the opportunity to engage in discussions on the development of thematic dossiers and recommendations from the university community on ways forward in the different SET-Plan, with a particular view on R&I actions and higher education activities.

EUA and the UNI-SET consortium have launched a Call for Contributions welcoming proposals for contributions for parallel sessions in form of good practices from university projects and initiatives (download the Call for Contributions on the event`s website. Deadline for submissions is 31 January 2017). The ECE themes are based on the priorities of the SET-Plan. For any enquiries please contact uni-set@eua.be
