CAMPUS YUSTE

This educational programme’s goal is to carry out specialised courses and meetings from a multidisciplinary point of view. The aim of these activities is to foster debate and reflection among university students, researchers and professionals on the process of European construction and integration as well as on current European issues and other subjects related to the history and memory of Europe and Latin America, or the founding objectives of the foundation.

Each year, the courses take place in a unique setting. the Monastery of San Jerónimo de Yuste and Guadalupe, which enables contact and exchange of knowledge between students and the speakers who will share reflections with experts in the field and with personalities of the first academic, political or social level. The location is, in short, a space for reflection, thought, culture and science.
