EU Energy and Climate Policy in the center of the EU - ECUE-Brussels study trip in January 2017

Students from the 17th ECUE-year visited the capital of the European Union from January 23rd to January 28th, 2017. The study trip is an obligatory part of the Master's study and is integrated in a seminar concerning research methods. The ECUE-students dealt with the empirical analysis of EU policies beforehand. On the basis of an EU-directive with the focus on energy and climate policy the students reconstructed a policy cycle in the European Union. Furthermore the students learnt how to identify the different positions of various actors in the legislative process in the seminar.

ECUE visited different actors in Brussels. Visits at European institutions (Parliament, Council, Commission) were on the agenda as well as visits at various NGOs (WWF, Carbon Market Watch), Think Tanks/ Foundations (EPC, European Climate Foundation, Heinrich-Böll-Foundation) and other interest groups (BDI, BEUC, Eurelectirc, WindEurope. The study trip in Brussels gives the opportunity to meet the actors live - those who experience the politics in Brussels and within the European Union every day. The students could meet Claude Turmes from The Greens/Free European Alliance in the European Parliament, Maurizio Di Lullo from the Council of the European Union, Adam White from WWF, Antje Fiehn from the Federation of German Industries, Femek de Jong from Carbon Market Watch or Stefanie Hiesinger from the European Commission.

The different actors and the specific topic of the study trip gave the possibility to get comprehensive insights into the current developments concerning the energy and climate policy.

ECUE Career Day 2016

The Masters’ Degree program ECUE is constantly trying to keep alive the connection between students and alumni. Pursuing this goal, the program coordinator Marcus Reinecke organized the ECUE Career Day 2016 along with the Student Council of ECUE. 14 ECUE Alumni from various professional fields met with students from the 16th and 17th ECUE classes on June 4, 2016. The already successfully working Alumni encouraged them with their experience, knowledge and advices and underlined that the ECUE graduation is a good starting position on the international labor market. This exchange of experiences was positively appreciated not only by the students, who were able to form an idea for the future, but also by the alumni, who remembered their master studying and were able to help the next generations.

We would like to thank everyone who participated on this event!
