Horizon 2020, Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network: PLATO “The Post-crisis Legitimacy of the European Union - European Training Network”

Project director: Professor Zdzisław Mach

Project duration: 2016-2020

The Post-Crisis Legitimacy of the European Union (PLATO) is a European Training Network funded under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions. The aim of this Horizon 2020 funding scheme is to train a new generation of creative and innovative researchers by bringing together universities, research centres and non-academic partners from different countries.

Multiple crises have created new legitimacy challenges for the EU. To investigate whether the EU’s responses to these crises have been legitimate with a set of crucial actors and standards, PLATO will recruit 15 PhD students to form an integrated research training network.

They will follow an intensive and demanding training programme through several PhD schools organised at network level. The students will get solid academic training by a multidisciplinary faculty of leading scholars, and complementary training in a range of other professional skills through more practically oriented courses and work experience from relevant sectors.

Transnational and cross-sectoral mobility will be a key aspect of the network. The early-stage researchers will spend parts of their PhD at another partner university and undertake an internship at a non-academic partner to gain first-hand experience from the policy-advice, consulting or civil society sectors. PLATO’s group of non-academic partners include several leading European think tanks, a consulting firm for trade associations, two civil society organisations, and the leading online daily news site on EU politics, EUobserver. Moreover, the career development organisation Vitae will assist the PhDs in their individual career planning.

PLATO has been granted 3.9 million euros over a period of four years.

Internal and external challenges to the European Union

Project director: Prof. dr hab. Zdzisław Mach

Grant number: 587492-EPP-1-2017-1-PL-EPPJMO-MODULE within Jean Monet Module (ERASMUS + Programme)

Module coordinator: dr Natasza Styczyńska

Time frame of the project: 2017-2020

The module will deliver tailor-made courses on specific EU issues relevant for graduates in their professional life. Firstly, the module will introduce a critical perspective on contemporary political and social challenges in the EU. In doing so, it will employ teaching methods where problem-based learning and analysis of selected case studies constitute the main pillars of building knowledge among module’s participants. This knowledge will then be supplemented by practical skills during the workshops, where students will develop competences that are relevant to their future careers. This includes negotiation skills; presentation, public speaking and argumentation; teamwork and consensual problem-solving as well as debating. The main themes include the external policies of the European Union, their democratic control and contestation; impact and perceptions of the EU on the local level that will fall into the “Political challenges to the European Integration” course (dr Natasza Styczyńska, Marcin Zubek MA and Maciej Stępka MA) and “Challenges to the European identity. The rebirth of nationalisms in Europe” course (prof. Zdzisław Mach and dr Joanna Orzechowska-Wacławska) respectively. The aforementioned projects generated publications that will be included in the syllabuses. The workshop will be organised to serve as a forum for discussing the projects’ findings and enable the wider dissemination of their results due to its international character.
