  Overview of the Academic Year

The programme stretches over three terms and takes place in two study locations: Nice and Berlin. A study trip to Brussels is also part of the programme.

The programme starts off in Nice in October.

The first term encompasses classes on the basics of the four energy modules (International energy governance, Economic energy governance, the EU energy governance and Energy and territories).

Each module is complemented by seminars dealing with current energy issues.
An academic or professional expert is invited for each event.

For their second term (January-March) students move on to Berlin where teaching in the four modules continues in the form of workshops. Each module organises a half-day workshop with an expert. Students prepare the workshops in group work delivering papers on themes linked to the topic of the seminar (climate negotiations, energy stock exchange, the role of the EU interconnections in the European energy market, the EU funds and the territorial energy policy). To better understand the local energy challenges in the framework of the German Energy Transition Field, visits will also be organised in co-operation with local institutions and companies. Another focus of this term will be put on the methodology classes, one dedicated to the research work and the Master’s thesis, the second one to project management.

In April students return to Nice.
This third and last term aims at deepening their knowledge on the four energy modules.

A special focus is also given to the methodological support for the students’ work on their thesis.
During this term, a simulation game will enable the participants to test their negotiation skills..

During this term students will finalise their work on their thesis in close contact with their academic supervisors. The thesis will be delivered in mid-June and defended at the end of June.
