Description

The underlying concern of this network project was how to reach out to communicate the EU more effectively to confront Euroscepticism. With this aim the Network promoted debates with relevant stakeholder and proposed innovative formats of communication that were tested by the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna during past JM projects (EUGlobal, EUWay and EUrgencies@Dem). Each involved country hosted:

- a European Awareness Day (EAD: a new communication format experimented by the Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna in Italy in previous JM projects), including a public event involving a vast audience of young people (at least 500), a deliberative workshop with relevant stakeholders (at least 15 organizations);

- a seminar with public officials from relevant administrations to exchange best practices on EU communication;

- a yearly seminar/webinar for high school teachers (at least 30);

- an academic conference involving scholars from other universities and think tanks, and resulting in open access publications and in Policy Reports.

All Network’s activities revolved around the question "What Europe is needed and how to get it?". Academic conferences articulated this question into five specific themes.

MoreEU activities were supported by a clear strategy for dissemination and exploitation of results, aimed at strengthening its European dimension. An important part of this strategy will be represented by the production of the following deliverables :

- Project web page and Social Media profile (with YouTube Channel);
- A periodic Newsletter in English;
- Multi-Media materials;
- Policy Reports.
- Conference Papers;
- Syllabus and teaching material for a European Civic Education course;
- A European Civic Education (ECE) MOOC will be offered at the end of MoreEU activities.

Budget: 377.944€ (European Commission - Erasmus+), of which 58.734€ were granted to Nova School of Law.
