The workshop Sustainable Europe and its global reach intends to contribute to the academic and policy debate by discussing the aspects of “Sustainable Europe” in its external dimension in an interdisciplinary setting. It aims to include speakers from law, political science and social science. We expressly encourage junior (PhD or PostDoc level) and senior researchers to apply. Given the applied nature of the NOVA-EU project, we strongly encourage participants to reflect on the problems also from a policy perspective with the view of offering policy recommendations during the workshop. The latter will form as a springboard for two policy briefs to be presented to the European Commission as one of the outputs of the project.
