The objective of this training programme is to carry out specialised courses and encounters aimed at encouraging the debate and reflection of university students, researchers and professionals on the process of European construction and integration, as well as on European current affairs and other subjects regarding European and Ibero-American history and remembrance, or the foundation’s foundational objectives. All this from a multidisciplinary perspective and in a unique context as is the Royal Monastery of Yuste, which enables the contact and exchange of knowledge among students and speakers, who will share reflections with experts on the subject matter and first-rate personalities form the academic, political or social area, thus making it a space for reflection, thought, culture and science.
The aim of the Yuste Campus grants is to make the training programme known and invite as many people possible, even beyond national borders, in order to enable the participation and presence of university students, researchers, experts and professionals interested in each subject area. The courses will become part of the European and Ibero-American Academy of Yuste Foundation’s virtual Yuste Campus via its Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUYKRDOh1TAzGYed3zKrtHA
