This training programme aims to develop specialised courses and meetings from a multidisciplinary point of view. It aims at promoting debate and reflection among university students, researchers and professionals on the process of European construction and integration, as well as current European issues, and other topics related to the history and memory of Europe and Ibero-America, or the founding objectives of the foundation.
The objective of the Campus Yuste grants is to make the training programme known and encourage as many people as possible to participate in it, even beyond national borders, to facilitate the participation and presence of university students, researchers, experts and professionals interested in each subject of study.
Each year, the courses take place in a unique setting, as the Royal Monastery of Yuste is, which facilitates the contact and exchange of knowledge between students and speakers, who will share reflections with experts in the field and with personalities of first academic, political or social, level. It is ultimately a space for reflection, thought, culture and science. Attendance at Campus Yuste courses will be subject to the health situation and the regulations issued by the authorities at the time of the celebration.
