Today, the 6th edition of the Alpeuregio Summer School, a cultural initiative organised by the Common Representation of the European Region Tyrol – South-Tyrol – Trentino, has come to an end. Every year, a group of students and new graduates from the three alpine regions get the chance to participate in this programme.

Extending over 10 intense days from 4th to 14th of July, the Alpeuregio Summer School offered its participants a unique setting with lectures given by policy-makers from different European Institutions and from other organizations based in Brussels. The programme combined lectures with interactive discussion groups and visits to the EU institutions.
This year’s edition took the new approach of following the Ten Priorities of the Juncker Commission. It also aimed to give the participants the chance to gain a comprehensive understanding of the European integration, both from a theoretical and practical point of view.

The different classes were conducted by high-level speakers, who answered all the participants’ questions and got them engaged in lively debates. The group met the Commissioner for European Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations, Johannes Hahn, and they visited the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union. They also had a meeting with some of the representatives of IOM (International Organisation for Migration) and of the Permanent Representation of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to the EU.

Furthermore, the Alpeuregio Café on EU Life Experience gave the participants the opportunity to have all their questions concerning a future career within and around the European Institutions answered: young people from different professional backgrounds, already living and working in Brussels, shared their own personal experiences and gave professional advice on job opportunities in Brussels.

Another major highlight of the programme was a lunch with the two MEPs Herbert Dorfmann and Karoline Graswander-Hainz.

The participants said they were enthusiastic about coming to Brussels, being involved within the European Institutions’ environment and sharpening their awareness about the EU’s core values and its challenges for the future.
