Training & Summer schools

Marie Curie Training Courses

FEEM is very active in providing top level training through the implementation of international doctoral and post-doctoral fellowships, training sites, research contracts and networks under the European Commission Marie Curie Actions Programme. This excellent performance was recently acknowledged by the Report of the European Commission DG Research “Mapping of Excellence in Economics”, where FEEM is listed as one of the only two Italian Marie Curie Training Sites in economics funded under the FP5 - Improving Human Potential Programme.
 

Under FP6, FEEM has actively aimed to maintain its highly successful rates in fund raising for training opportunities. Success shows particularly at the level of the Marie Curie Conferences and Training Courses Action with the Series of Conferences CORE and EURODIV and with the Series of Summer Schools ESS RESECON. The Marie Curie Conferences and Training Courses aim to provide short-term training opportunities to allow researchers to network and keep abreast of the latest scientific developments in their field. This action is mainly targeted at early-stage researchers and researchers with up to 10 years of experience.

 
CORE "The potential of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) to contribute to the implementation and integration of EU strategies" 2006-2009
Under the co-ordination of FEEM, CORE aims to organise a coherent series of four Conferences with a view to investigate how CSR may contribute to the implementation and integration of the following EU core strategies: the Lisbon strategy, the sustainability strategy and the integration of an enlarged Union. The CORE Conferences represent a unique opportunity for young researchers to learn about the potential of CSR in an interdisciplinary and stimulating setting. A different range of multidisciplinary competencies and professional experiences is gathered with the intent to provide highly qualified training on a research topic of European interest. In terms of training capacity, the Conferences are structured as to guarantee a lively and constructive exchange of knowledge from experienced researchers and professionals to young researchers, through a structure that favours continuous interactions and debate (i.e. panel sessions, knowledge-building sessions and roundtables). The first three Conferences focus on the Lisbon strategy, the sustainability strategy and EU enlargement, respectively. The fourth and last Conference tackles the question of whether CSR can promote the necessary integration of the three strategies. The Conferences are organised by the three project partners: FEEM (Italy); Nottingham University (UK); the Öko Institut E.V.(Germany) as indicated below:

The topics and schedule of the four events are the following:

  • First Conference: "The potential of CSR to support the implementation of the EU Lisbon Strategy", organised and hosted by FEEM in Milan (Italy) on 22-23 June 2006.
  • Second Conference: "The potential of CSR to support the implementation of the EU Sustainability Strategy", organised and hosted by FEEM in Milan (Italy) on 14-15 June 2007.
  • Third Conference: "The potential of CSR to drive integration in an enlarged EU", organised and hosted by Nottingham University in Nottingham (UK) on 19-20 June 2008.
  • Fourth Conference: "The potential of CSR to support the integration of core EU Strategies", organised and hosted by the Öko Institut E.V. in Darmstadt (Germany) on 15-16 June 2009.

    ESS RESECON: "European Summer School in Resource and Environmental Economics" 2005-2009
    ESS RESECON aims to provide advanced and top-level training to young researchers from all over Europe and beyond on European issues related to environmental and resource economics through the organisation of a series of summer schools. ESS RESECON builds upon a joint and consolidated experience among the European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists (EAERE), FEEM and the Venice International University (VIU) in successfully running the European Summer School in Resource and Environmental Economics. The ESS RESECON series of summer schools is addressed to small groups of doctoral students in environmental and resource economics from all over Europe and beyond. It follows a traditional structure: lectures by professors, presentations by PhD students, reading time, consultation sessions and social events. The faculty is comprised of leaders in the field, and offers an overall coverage of the specialist area. ESS RESECON is implemented in a time frame of 4 years. The specialised topic of the summer schools varies from year to year, in order to respond to current needs and address issues that are either at the heart of the research debate, or of new research and policy interest. All events are jointly organised by EAERE, FEEM and VIU. EAERE retains overall scientific responsibility of the structure and contents of the events, whilst FEEM and VIU provide support as concerns organisational and local infrastructural issues.

    The topics and schedule of the four events are the following:

  • First Summer School: "Computable general equilibrium modelling in environmental and resource economics", organised and hosted by EAERE, FEEM and VIU in Venice (Italy) on 25 June-1 July 2006.
  • Second Summer School: "Trade, property rights and biodiversity", organised and hosted by EAERE, FEEM and VIU in Venice (Italy) on 4-10 July 2007.
  • Third Summer School: "Space in unified models of economy and ecology", organised and hosted by EAERE, FEEM and VIU in Venice (Italy) on 6-12 July 2008.
  • Fourth Summer School: "Economics, transport and environment", organised and hosted by EAERE, FEEM and VIU in Venice (Italy) on 5-11 July 2009.

    EURODIV: "Cultural Diversity in Europe" 2006-2009
    EURODIV aims to organise a series of five Conferences on the understanding of cultural diversity in Europe and on the ways of dealing with diversity and its dynamics in the globalisation era. The analysis of (cultural) diversity in Europe and related issues is currently very high on the political agenda and is a most debated research area. However, the interdisciplinary feature of cultural diversity is rarely adequately reflected in the current training offer. Under the coordination of FEEM, the EURODIV Conferences offer a highly valuable opportunity for young researchers and leading scientists to communicate in a spirit of mutual learning, providing an organised and formal training at the frontiers of current research. Five themes have been identified to design a training and research path with a view to improve the understanding of cultural diversity and the ability of dealing with it. Two wide Conferences (the first and last one, 80-90 participants) and three thematic Conferences (30-40 participants) are envisaged. The three thematic events are conceived as training sessions on more specific subjects and include a knowledge-building session. The Conferences are organised by FEEM (Italy); Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (Belgium); University College London (UK); the Istituto Psicoanalitico per le Richerche Sociali (Italy).

    The topics and schedule of the five events are the following:

  • First Conference: "Understanding Diversity", organised and hosted by FEEM in Milan (Italy) on 26-27 January 2006.
  • Second Conference: "Diversity in Organisations: Delineating Processes and Management Practices", organised and hosted by Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in Leuven (Belgium) on 19-20 September 2006.
  • Third Conference: "Diversity in Cities: Visible and Invisible Walls", organised and hosted by University College London in London (UK) on 11-12 September 2007.
  • Fourth Conference: "Diversity in Cities: New Models of Governance", organised and hosted by the Istituto Psicoanalitico per le Ricerche Sociali in Rome (Italy) on 16-17 September 2008.
  • Fifth Conference: "Dynamics of Diversity in the Globalisation Era", organised and hosted by FEEM in Milan (Italy) on 22-23 October 2009.
