Call for Applications: Jean Monnet Module EU Environmental Policies And Law (Pollen)

Academic Programme: Jean Monnet Module EU Environmental Policies And Law (Pollen)
6-18 February 2017, Saint-Louis University, Brussels, Belgium
Application deadline: end of December 2016

The EU Environmental Policies & Law (POLLEN) – Jean Monnet Module is a novel and intensive academic programme organised by the Institute for European Studies in partnership with the Research Centre in Political Science, both at Université Saint-Louis – Bruxelles. In 2016, the European Commission selected this programme as a Jean Monnet Module.

The POLLEN Module aims to foster excellence-in-teaching in EU Environmental studies and consists of a two-week course of 43 teaching hours (staggered hours – from 15.30 to 19.30 including two Saturday mornigs) covering the following areas:

  • EU Environmental Law and EU in Multilateral Negotiations
  • EU Climate Change and Energy Governance
  • EU Waste Management, Chemicals and Nanotechnologies
  • Biodiversity, Agriculture, Food & Trade


The POLLEN – Jean Monnet Module is aimed at Master and PhD students and practitioners in Law, Political Science, International and European Studies, but also in other environment-related areas (e.g. Life Sciences, Bioengineering).

Its academic added value relies on its interdisciplinary character. Confirmed speakers come from humanities and social sciences and from applied sciences. It thus exposes participants to a range of theoretical approaches and methodological skills, helping them bolster their career prospects and grasp the environmental challenges Europe faces today.

POLLEN Jean Monnet Module is organised by the Institute for European Studies (IES) in partnership with the Research Centre in Political Science (CReSPo) both at Université Saint-Louis – Bruxelles (USL-B) in Brussels, Belgium.
