futurEU student competition

Join our first futurEU competition and have your idea about EU reform heard!

futurEU is an ongoing student-led initiative founded in 2019 by graduate students of the Hertie School, and seeking to contribute to shaping the EU of tomorrow by involving students in the public debate.

With the support of the Jacques Delors Centre Berlin, the Hertie School and CIVICA, futurEU is organising a student competition throughout the academic year 2020/21.

The goal of the competition is to provide CIVICA students and PhD researchers with a platform to encourage them to actively find and propose policy solutions tackling questions of EU reform.

The competition consists of two rounds: written and oral. For the written round students submit a policy brief on the competition’s topic. The best briefs are selected for the oral rounds and presented in front of a jury of experts.

What is the topic?
Visionary scenario: The European Council President just convened a Convention for treaty reform. Your team has been given carte blanche (full discretion) on preparing one major treaty reform to be negotiated at the intergovernmental conference. What reform would your team present?

What is the prize?
The winning team is invited to work on their proposal with experts from the Jacques Delors Centre Berlin and get their policy brief published on the Centre's website.

Registrations for the competition have closed.
