The Graduate Conference is a unique conference specifically for PhD students and early career researchers to discuss ongoing research related to the history of European integration, broadly conceived. The Graduate Conference consists of panel sessions focused on submitted research papers, as well as debates on historiographical and methodological approaches. The aim of the conference is to provide an informal atmosphere in which new ideas and research directions, as well as practical advice on publishing and academic careers can be shared and debated.
