Project description

The T.M.C. Asser Instituut is a partner organisation in an ongoing research project entitled ‘EU Trade and Investment Policy’, an Innovative Training Network, funded by the European Commission within the framework of its Horizon 2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions. As a partner organisation, the Asser Institute will host several early stage researchers in 2018 and 2019.

This project will foster interdisciplinary research into the evolving international trade policy of the European Union (EU) with a view to create a significantly increased European knowledge base and research capacity on EU law and policy of the regulation of international trade through free trade agreements (FTAs) with third countries. It consists of 15 PhD research projects, which are supervised by academics of 11 partners with an interdisciplinary training programme covering the legal, political and economic foundations of EU trade and investment policy and an interdisciplinary and intersectoral programme of secondments involving 18 partner organisations.

The project is coordinated by the University of Birmingham, and runs for the duration of four years, from April 2017 onwards.
