Training

The Robert Schuman Centre offers academic and executive training programmes, both residential and online, in a variety of fields.

Through its programmes, centres and projects, the Centre targets the training needs of a range of stakeholders, spanning academics, diplomats, policymakers, private sector, international organisations and national government officials, regulators, judges and journalists.

 

The Academy of Global Governance offers a unique executive training model; a perfect combination of academic, research-based knowledge and evidence-based practice.

The teaching staff includes leading academics from top universities and research centres, officials from national ministries, government agencies and international organisations, and practitioners from the business sector.

The Academy also offers “tailor-made training”, which is designed to fulfil specific institutional training needs and either geared towards the professional advancement of junior, middle or senior management officials or towards offering participants refresher courses on a variety of global governance issues.

The CMPF Summer School offers journalists and media practitioners, mainly from Europe, the opportunity to expand their knowledge on the latest academic, policy, market and professional trends in journalism, as well as to share experiences and ideas.

The School provides a unique experience in which participants can learn from distinguished scholars and journalists, and discuss interactively topics such as the legal perspectives of media freedom and pluralism, media business models, investigative journalism and the challenges of new media.

ENTraNCE is a project focused on competition law and economics issues. The Project is headed by Professor Pier Luigi Parcu and its research residential team, and it is also supported by a Scientific Committee. The aim of ENTraNCE is to become a new important hub where European and international competition enforcers and other stakeholders can exchange ideas, share best-practices, debate emerging policy issues and enhance their networks. ENTraNCE carries out three specific activities:

  • Training
  • Research
  • Policy Debate

The link of training, debate and research activity within the Project, and the presence and inputs of a variegated community of scholars and practitioners, aims at creating a common cultural ground where major scientific projects can be carried out. Moreover, ENTraNCE is articulated in two axis: ENTraNCE for Judges and ENTraNCE for Executives.

The Florence School of Banking and Finance offers executive training to supervisors, regulators, private banks, EU institutions and Academics

Additional to its residential training series, the school also offers online seminars as well as online courses jointly developed with the European Banking Authority.

Residential training

Online training

Florence School of Regulation offers a wide range of training activities (from fundamentals to executive training), since more than a decade, to staff from European and national regulatory authorities, network companies, as well as civil servants and policy makers from European institutions at different levels of their professional career. The training creates a lively dialogue between forefront academic knowledge and the practice from the field. 

Since 2014 the Florence online School of Regulation offers several online training formats allowing people from all over the world to access our knowledge: 

  • online events, which are interactive live events of less than an hour with our research fellows and other experts presenting their latest research
  • topic gallery, allowing people to access hundreds of open-access publications and multi-media resources in an organised way 
  • online courses, reaching out to hundreds of professionals world-wide studying a topic together from abroad 

All our residential trainings are today offered as blended trainings, combining the best of two worlds, residential and online training.

The Migration Summer School provides advanced training in migration studies to doctoral and postdoctoral researchers as well as to civil servants and professionals from intergovernmental, governmental and non-governmental agencies working in areas relating to migration and asylum. From an interdisciplinary perspective, participants are encouraged to critically interrogate some of the subtle assumptions underlying much contemporary academic, political and media debate surrounding migration.

Teaching is accompanied by research work and discussions, through which participants are encouraged to translate perceived societal problems into social scientific research questions, and to contribute to the solution of these problems by combining insights from demographic, economic, legal and sociological approaches. In addition, ad-hoc specialist training events are held not only at the Migration Policy Centre, but also in countries relevant to its projects.
