About the Working on Europe Academy 2022

YUFE-SEM Working on Europe Academy is a series of student and citizens-based, research-centered lectures jointly organized by the Maastricht University and Studio Europa Maastricht (SEM) under the Young Universities for the Future of Europe (YUFE) alliance.

The lecture series aims to provide unique and interdisciplinary research on Europe and European integration. Fostered through a proactive and critical debate, students and citizens will explore the main concerns of the European project and discover their role in shaping its future.

By focusing on the research, history and heritage of Europe, the multidisciplinary team of researchers will create a digital, interactive and knowledge-based platform for dialogue and debate covering the following topics:

  • Democracy, Politics, Security and the Rule of Law
  • Identity, heritage and the citizen perspective
  • Prosperity, welfare and inequality
  • Knowledge, technology and digitalization

The Academy will be a meeting point for European students and citizens who want to work on a better Europe!
