The WISC-EU Jean Monnet Centre will plan a variety of workshops, events, research trips and teaching opportunities, which will enhance the debate and exchange of experiences about the EU and encourage and facilitate research on pressing current events relating to democracy, legitimacy, and representation in the EU; the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership; social policy; and medical technology policy. These events will be developed in the context of the proposed campus visitor programs, for short-term intensive instruction with Marshall-Monnet Scholars-in-Residence, and semester-long courses with a Diplomat-in-Residence, and State Department Official-in-Residence. It will also aid the search for new external partners in other parts of the world by relying on and fortifying the personal and professional networks of faculty, staff and students associated with the Center, e.g. the EU Horizon think-tank for US undergraduates for which Wisconsin has a fledgling chapter.
