THESEUS Award for Promising Research on European Integration 2015

THESEUS is a common initiative of the Centre d'études européennes de Sciences Po Paris, the Jean Monnet Chair for Political Science at the University of Cologne, the Trans European Policy Studies Association, Brussels, and the Fritz Thyssen Foundation, Cologne. Its aim is to establish a European network of thinkers, actors and ideas, and to foster the open and constructive dialogue between academia and politics about the future challenges of Europe.

The THESEUS Award for Promising Research on European Integration distinguishes an excellent piece of work of a junior researcher in the field of European Integration, which analyses an ongoing challenge for the European Union and its member states:

  • with regard to the institutions, policies or policymaking processes of the European Union;
  • from a comparative perspective across the member states of the European Union;
  • recommending potential institutional or policy solutions.

The rewarded work will be a Ph.D. thesis or a publication in a major journal (published within the last three years from application deadline). Disciplines covered include especially - but not exclusively - political or social sciences. There is no nationality or geographical criteria for selection. THESEUS accepts both direct applications and nominations through third parties. The award is endowed with 2,000.00 EUR and the winner will be involved into the activities of the THESEUS network. The award ceremony will take place during the THESEUS Conference in Cologne on 17 - 18 March 2016.

Application deadline is 1 September 2015.
