The main publication outlet of the TRES project is the Routledge Encyclopedia for European Studies, edited by chair holder Prof. Thomas Hoerber and four other lead editors: Prof. Ben Leruth (University of Groningen, Netherlands), Prof. Maxine David (Leiden University, Netherlands), Prof. Birol Yesilada (Portland State University, USA) and Prof. Stéphanie Laulhé Shaelou (Lancaster University, Cyprus). The rich academic output of this publication will not only contribute to the teaching of European Studies at ESSCA but will irrigate the European Studies community as a whole. This ambitious project will serve as a basis for the creation of courses taught and supervised at ESSCA in the second and fourth years of study and at the University of Passau (Germany) under the responsibility of the Jean Monnet Chair.
The TRES project will also introduce a new and innovative programme: a European Studies Summer School, bringing together international students at several ESSCA campuses. This annual event will feature an academic conference for researchers, in which students and alumni can participate. The courses taught by the researchers are specially designed for them with an introduction to European institutions and policies.
The Jean Monnet Chair will thus contribute strongly to enhancing the EU*Asia Institute’s core expertise in the fields of European studies, EU-Asia relations, sustainability and innovation.
