The course is organized into:

- Lectures on fundamental aspects of the EU policy making and the European urban agenda (programmes related to urban sustainable development & regeneration, social inclusion and social innovation, smart city, research and innovation);

- roundtables with guest speakers on specific topics;

- seminars conducted by practitioners and external experts.

It provides students with an understanding of the functioning of EU policy instruments in key-policy areas. Students are given a selected bibliography.

It is introductory to teaching activity Nr.2

 

Impact. Outcome foreseen for the School of Doctoral Studies: increased the degree of Europeanisation of the School, reinforcing a European dimension in Doctoral Studies. Outcome foreseen for students: enhanced employability deepening knowledge of EU policy making and programs in fields which are strategic for local and regional governments, city administrations, civil society organizations; increased opportunities for PhD students and young academics in terms of career development developing their knowledge of European Research and Innovation Programmes.

Teaching methods: dialogue format, working groups. Lively classroom discussion and debate are considered essential for learning.

Discipline of audience: Urbanism, Urban policies, Architecture, Design, Information and Communication Technologies, Social and Political Sciences, Economics, Human Studies.

 

Teaching activity Nr. 2 – 1st acad. Semester, 40 hours –

Typology: Project-Work  “EU public policies: learning to apply”

 

Open to: graduate, post-graduate students; doctoral and post-doctoral students; young researchers; Erasmus and international students.

 

The training course is conceived in the form of cross-sectoral and multidisciplinary project work. The project work is an open/living format, a laboratory practically oriented. It combines rigorous academic development with strong practical applications in individual and group-based work.

The course attempts to stimulate the active involvement of graduate and postgraduate students, doctoral students and young professionals in European policy design. Specific attention is devoted to problems of implementation.

Students, organized into multidisciplinary working groups (usually of three to five students), will be requested to formulate project proposals in a field of their interest, choosing a policy programme.

They will learn how to identify a policy problem and to define it interactively; how to connect it to a more general policy debate and practice, tracing the state of the art of the topic; how to build a partnership and/or connect to an existing network; how to share main objectives and structure a programme of actions; how to define and select indicators for evaluating expected outputs and eventual outcomes.

To facilitate learning, students will be asked to conduct interviews to local public officials or civil servants, who are in charge with the management of EU programs, focusing on their past and present experiences, their practices and modes of organisation, their demands of expertise, their needs for  external support, exchange and synergies with other organisations.

Assignments: students will contribute to the organisation of a workshop conducted by practitioners and external experts (see Events: “Euro-design in practice workshop”), collaborating to the identification of 3 guest speakers (they will be requested, at the beginning of the project work, to indicate the experts or the field of expertise of the guest speakers), according to their specific interests.

Students, organised in multidisciplinary groups, will be requested to draft a project proposal and to communicate it in a short video. Selected videos will be promoted on existing IUAV learning channels and platforms.

 

Impact. Increased PhD, graduate students and young professionals capacity to apply to European programs, providing them  with the basic toolbox for euro-design.

Increased their professional skills in policy design to undertake and advise on public policy-making.

Improved knowledge of young researchers who want to carry out research on EU subjects.

Teaching methods: dialogue format, working groups. Lively classroom discussion and debate are considered essential for learning.

Discipline of audience: Urbanism, Urban policies, Architecture, Design, Information and Communication Technologies, Economics, Social and Political Sciences, Human Studies.
