Research and Expertise in Society (2014-2016)
The Centre for European Studies in collaboration with ARENA Centre for European Studies, University of Oslo offers a new graduate research track within the MA in European Studies programme: Central and Eastern European Studies: Research Track.
Analyses of educational needs and the labor market situation shows an increasing demand for degree programmes combining research and didactics as well as offering a cooperation between science and business. In response to these needs, the project is aimed at improving the educational potential of the partners' institutes through the creation of the graduate research track within an MA programme in European Studies in Kraków: Central and Eastern European Studies: Research Track.
The specialization is a response to the need for professionals who will use the knowledge acquired during their studies in the most efficient way. The specialization is a innovative combination of theory and practical set of skills. Courses will be lead by academic specialists as well as experts from the private and public sectors. It will allow the students to learn about the mechanism of how the scientific research can be transferred into actions conducive to the development of economy, society and democracy which they will then be able to implement during their internship in NGOs, public or private institutions and companies. The result will be to educate top experts in the field, conscious of their role and responsibilities of researchers, who will strengthen the future, public-private partnership.
The project is supported by a grant from Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA and Norway Grants and co-financed by the Polish funds.
The collaboration was planned for the two academic years 2014/2015 and 2015/2016.
The project is led in a collaboration with ARENA Centre for European Studies, Univeristy in Oslo.
