EuroSim


Das Europa-Institut veranstaltet in Zusammenarbeit mit einem Konsortium amerikanischer und europäischer Universitäten eine jährlich stattfindende Simulation der europäischen Entscheidungsprozesse: EuroSim.

Die in englischer Sprache durchgeführte Veranstaltung bietet den Studierenden eine exzellente Gelegenheit erworbenes Wissen und Fähigkeiten in der Praxis zu testen.

Nach einem intensiven Coaching durch fachkundige Spezialisten nehmen die Studierenden die Rolle europäischer Entscheidungsträger ein und arbeiten eine Resolution zum jeweiligen Thema des Kongresses aus.

EuroSim findet jedes Jahr abwechselnd an Universitäten in Europa und den USA statt. Neben dem Training beruflicher Fertigkeiten bietet die Simulation eine internationale Plattform für Networking sowie den Besuch interessanter Metropolen beider Kontinente.

Impressionen

I value the learning experience on the topic energy and the environmental benefits of investments in renewable energy technologies. The issue of energy security and dependence on foreign suppliers has been seriously analyzed. The discussions we had were indeed very realistic providing us with great  knowledge and deep understanding of the meaningful roles carried out by EU institutions. Fabiane Pohlmann 

EuroSim provides you with a set of soft-skills which make the difference in every career. However it is also fruitful because gives you the opportunity to learn the EU decision-making process while you enjoy the chance of traveling and to get to know better your classmates. Andrés Eduardo Alvarado Garzón


Vorbereitungsphase

An intensive research, a continuous training of written and oral speeches, observing the development of my team members and working on the criticism received, were the key facts towards preparing for EuroSim. Carolina Goberna Caride

EuroSim was an amazing experience to me, being a chance to discover qualities and features I didn't know I had before. Participation in EuroSim requires good skills of public speaking, communication, negotiation and research: abilities that can be relevant to any employer. It shows also an interest in other politics and cultures, something which goes beyond the mere completion of a degree programme. Lorenzo Consorti

I prepared by consulting websites of the EU institutions, reading several news, and learning with available documents in order to provide me with a general understanding on Energy Strategies and the EU legislative process. The simulation sections organised by our EuroSim instructors have also contributed to the improvement of my public speech skills, presentation and negotiation tactics.

Preparing for EuroSim you are being coached closely to improve your public speaking, your discussion style and your negotiation techniques, which you are able to really put in practice during the 4-day conference. To me, this kind of soft-skill training is incredibly valuablable, a big asset for an LL.M.-program. Pieter Vaerenbergh

EuroSim carried me to an international professional working environment while still being a student. It taught me how unpredictable politics can be and increased my motivation towards future goals. I would encourage anyone to participate without doubt! Carolina Goberna Caride

EuroSim was special for so many reasons, the most important of all was being in a setting which invokes all of one's capabilities and skills. It was not just about the theoretical knowledge, but also about personal traits such as temperance, negotiation, resourcefulness, and persuasion. Especially if I intend to pursue a career in politics, I believe that a future employer would appreciate that I can provide some evidence that I had some basis for being a delegate member on his/her team.

Coaching for EuroSim

EuroSim is one of the highlights of this Master’s Program. It is one of the activities that makes the curriculum of the Europa-Institut different from the others. EuroSim gives participants the opportunity to deepen their knowledge in a specific and actual European policy matter. The participation in EuroSim and the preparation for it are an excellent way to train your skills in negotiating in delicate issues, presenting in front of a group of people, managing efficiently your time, cooperating with others and also accepting responsibility, forming and defending your own positions, qualifications that are valuable for a successful professional career. 

Having lived EuroSim both as participant and as a supervisor, I have only one thing to say: EuroSim is an amazing journey! Be a part of it! Eleftherios Petropoulos
