The FRP is the agency’s channel for cooperation and information exchange with almost 400 civil society organisations, working on numerous fundamental rights issues across the EU. The platform brings together a diverse group of actors on the European, national and local levels. It is a unique forum that allows for a truly European debate on fundamental rights. The platform meets once a year.

Modeled after the highly successful Rotman International Trading Competition (RITC), the European variant illustrates both universities’ commitment to experiential learning and preparing students for the competitive field of finance.

 

For similar opportunity go to Education



Organization: The Rotman European Trading Competition (RETC) is a three-day event built with the cooperation between the LUISS Guido Carli University of Rome and the Rotman school of Management at the University of Toronto.

Modeled after the highly successful Rotman International Trading Competition (RITC), the European variant illustrates both universities’ commitment to experiential learning and preparing students for the competitive field of finance.

During the competition, students execute trades on the Rotman Interactive Trader (RIT), a proprietary stock market simulator.

Cases are designed to teach students about different asset-pricing and trading strategies employed in the real market. Simulations are used to create a dynamic world where any possible sequence of events can happen. It’s up to the students to devise a proper trading strategy that considers these possibilities, execute a plan, and generate profits under those conditions.

 

Open to: European students

 

When: From August 23rd to August 25th 2018

 

Where: LUISS Guido Carli University of Rome

 

Opportunity Description: The third Rotman European Trading Competition (RETC) will be hosted by LUISS Guido Carli University of Rome from August 23rd to August 25th, 2018.

RETC is a two and a half day invitational event that allows teams from schools across Europe to participate in a simulated market.

Its structure is similar to the very successful Rotman International Trading Competition (RITC) held annually in Toronto, where 50 schools from around the world meet and compete in simulated markets.

The primary goal of the competition is to give students the opportunity to apply their classroom knowledge to actual markets.

RETC will provide a forum for students to interact with each other and learn from each others’ experiences and opinions.



Qualifications: A school can send a team that consists of either MSc/MBA students or undergraduate students. Ph.D. students are also allowed.

There are 4 students per team (two boys and two girls), plus an optional faculty advisor.

Currently the registration is limited to one team per school, one for each European Country. Due to logistical constraints, the maximum number of teams is 51.

 

Application process: It is possible to apply here

 

Fees: 500 € per team (four students plus an optional faculty advisor)

 

Useful information: Accommodation costs for RETC 2018, including seven meals (Thursday Dinner, Friday Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner, Saturday Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner), will be fully covered by LUISS. Meals will be served at the university canteen (“mensa”). The Gala Dinner will be held at Villa Blanc.

The registration does also include the free-of-charge sharing of electric cars and assisted-pedal bikes. 

All accommodation arrangements will be made and funded by LUISS. Students will be accommodated in two LUISS residences (here is possible to see the map) from Monday 20th to Monday 27th, August 2018. University faculty and staff will be accommodated in a 4-star hotel in the area immediately surrounding the LUISS campus (here is possible to see the map) from Thursday 23rd to Sunday 26th, August 2018. The name of the residence/hotel will be communicated by email once registered.

First, about three quarters of EU legislation is implemented at local or regional level, so local and regional representatives needed to have a say in the development of new EU laws. Second, there were concerns about a widening gap between the public and the process of European integration; involving the elected level of government closest to the citizens was one way of closing the gap. Within the European Union local and regional authorities have lobbied for an increased say in EU affairs. This resulted in the creation by the Maastricht Treaty of the European Committee of the Regions, and provision for member states to be represented in the Council of the EU by ministers from their regional governments.



When: The period of the courses runs from the 15/01/2018 till 14/01/2019 (You can also take part only to the courses and lessons chosen)

Building on this successful experience, the CoR is launching a third MOOC focusing on "How to make the most of EU resources for regions and cities". The MOOC will provide relevant information on present and future EU policies and programmes, as well as practical tools and examples of available funding opportunities at regional and local level.

The course will be available on Iversity, an online learning platform, and will include videos, factsheets, infographics and web-streamed live debates with Q&A from the course participants. Moreover, course followers will be able to interact via their learning journals in the course platform. During the first six weeks of the course (15 January-23 February 2018), followers will focus on one specific theme per week and will evaluate their learning progress via assignments and a weekly quiz. Studying time will be about 1.5 hours per week. The course material will remain online for one year, so that after the first six weeks learners can work through the course material in their own pace. The course is co-created with several Directorates-General of the European Commission – Regional and Urban Policy; Budget; Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion; Agriculture and Rural development; Eurostat – as well as the European Investment Bank, Interreg Europe and URBACT. The course is free of charge, open to anyone interested in EU and regional and local affairs, and accessible on all devices.
