This training programme aims to carry out specialised courses and meetings from a multidisciplinary point of view. The goal 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 current European issues, and other topics related to the history and memory of Europe and Latin America, or the Foundation’s founding objectives.
The purpose of the Campus Yuste grants is to make the training programme known to as many people as possible and encourage their participation even beyond national borders, enabling the participation and presence of university students, researchers, experts and professionals interested in each subject of study.
Each year, the courses are held in a unique setting: the Monastery of San Jerónimo de Yuste, which enables 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. The location is, in short, a space for reflection, thought, culture and science. Attendance to the Campus Yuste courses will be subject to the health situation and the rules dictated by the authorities when they are scheduled.
