This training programme aims to develop specialised courses and meetings from a multidisciplinary point of view. These are to foster 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 issues related to the history and memory of Europe and Latin America or the founding objectives of the foundation.

The purpose of the Campus Yuste grants is to make the training programme known and have as many people as possible participate in it, even beyond national borders, in order 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 is the Monastery of San Jerónimo de Yuste, which facilitates the contact and exchange of knowledge between the students and the speakers. The former will share reflections with experts in the field and personalities of the first academic, political or social level, which, in short, makes it a space for reflection, thought, culture and science.
