In 2018, the Centre international de formation européenne (CIFE), Berlin and Nice, and the European Center of Economic and Financial Law (ECEFIL) of the Panteion University, Athens, Greece organize for the 6th time the EU-China Summer School in Greece.

This three week Summer School will be held for 10 days in Athens, the capital of Greece, and 12 days on the Greek island of Spetses. During this programme, the Chinese students will be exposed to intensive lectures on the major political, legal and economic perspectives of the EU. All courses will be taught in English by internationally renowned faculty from CIFE, the Panteion University and other renowned European universities. Moreover, by visiting institutions dealing with EU-China trade relations and investment partnerships and other major topics related to the academic content of the 2018 Summer School programme (such as COSCO in Pireus, the Chinese Embassy in Athens, The Niarchos Foundation), the Chinese students will be brought into direct contact with decision-makers and practitioners working in this field. Finally, this Summer School will be enriched by a thrilling cultural programme which will provide the Chinese students with guided visits to historic sites such as the Acropolis and many other important archaeological sites in southern Greece.

The exposure to the European Union in the classroom coupled with field trips to institutions and excursions to historical and cultural landmarks of ancient Greece will make the EU-China Summer School one of the most rewarding experiences of your university career.
