CEU Summer University invites innovative, research-based and/or policy-oriented course proposals from faculty members at CEU or elsewhere. SUN courses are usually taught by a team of five to seven faculty members representing a wide range of geographical, disciplinary, and institutional backgrounds. The target audience is master’s and PhD students, junior faculty and researchers, and professionals. The program aims to help strengthen CEU’s research capacity and academic network-building efforts. Especially welcome are course proposals that could be successfully integrated into the University’s research strategy and planned projects.
Three proposal submission options are available with the following deadlines:
OPTION I: Two-stage submission process with a simplified first stage and the provision of more materials in the second stage once the proposal has passed the first one.
1. Submission of a draft proposal, deadline: April 7, 2017
2. Feedback on draft proposals by the SUN Board, deadline: April 29, 2017
3. Submission of the complete course proposal, deadline: June 6, 201
OPTION II: One-stage submission of new full proposals, deadline: May 5, 2017
If a proposal author does not wish to take advantage of the two-stage process and receive feedback from the CEU Summer University Board before submitting the complete proposal, the first stage of sending a draft proposal can be skipped.
OPTION III: One-stage submission of repeat full proposals, deadline: August 10, 2017
Repeat courses are requested to submit a one-stage full proposal.
The program invites innovative, research-based and/or policy-oriented course proposals taught by a team of 5-7 outstanding faculty members, representing a wide range of geographical, disciplinary and institutional backgrounds from CEU and elsewhere. The target audience is MA and PhD students, junior faculty and researchers, and professionals. (For detailed guidelines see the Call.)
The program would like to contribute to strengthening CEUs research capacity and academic network building efforts, therefore course proposals are especially welcome that could be successfully integrated into the university’s research strategy and planned projects by
- proposing topics, disciplines and methods CEU aims to promote
- enhancing CEU's collaboration with its strategic partners and involving new ones through the summer school
- yielding long-term results, such as creating research networks, initiating (joint) publications, etc.
- including a summer school organized with the help of the SUN office in your grant applications to the EU or other donors
