Organised by the Alcide de Gasperi Centre with financial support from the International Visegrad Fund and the EUI, the two-day graduate conference invites early career researchers from across Europe to present their work, receive feedback, and engage with senior scholars on historiographical and methodological approaches to European integration. The aim of the conference is to provide an informal atmosphere in which new ideas and research directions, as well as advice on publishing and academic careers can be shared and debated. The 2023 edition aims expressly to include participants and topics representative of both eastern and western European approaches to research on European integration.
The aim of the conference is to facilitate network building and support research on European integration among doctoral and early career researchers (no more than 5 years after PhD completion) from across Europe, including those hailing from eastern Europe, the accession countries, and the western Balkans.
The programme is designed around sessions where selected participants present their submitted research papers for discussion and feedback, as well as presentations by more senior academics concerning academic publications and careers.
The conference has been made possible thanks to support from the International Visegrad Fund and the EUI.
