The 5th edition of the Evening&Weekend Programme ended together with January 2019: time really doesmove faster when you put yourself out there facing new challenges! But on the IMES board we are addictedto new adventures as we are already looking forward to the 29th edition, starting by the end of April 2019. This month, however, we would like to share a happy-ending story: the one of Vito Emanuele Cambria, participant of the 23rd edition of the IMES Day Programme held in 2016. After the programme Vito became a successful project manager and his proposal got finally awarded. We couldn’t help but to ask him to share his personal and professional victory with us.


1) Brief introduction: what is your background, what are the factors that pushed you to attend the IMES programme in Brussels?


I am an Italian biologist daily dealings with threatened ecosystems and their disappearing inhabitants: plants, animals and fungi shaping the marvellous natural heritage Europe yet holds. Concrete actions are necessary to keep safeguarding such great biological and landscape diversity. After years spent studing botany, ecology and conservation biology, I felt the need to move from theory to practice. EU funding programmes were the answer to my quest. In the past I had the opportunity to became familiar with EU projects as implementing expert, but only after attending the IMES programme I started understanding for real how the machine works! During the Course you can, first, build up a comphrensive picture of the EU functioning mechanism (this makes you also a better EU citizen by the way, an additional aspect that should be never underestimated). Secondly, you can rely on trainers, with first-hand experience on EU project appraisal and implementation, which step-by-step will lead you to the acquisition of sound competences in the most important EU Programmes (LIFE, H2020, INTERREG, COSME, etc.) and Project Management tools and techniques. They are the ones with the cat’s in the cradle!


2) What happened immediately after the end of the IMES programme? What changed and how did you put into practice what you learned in class? ( How was the adjustment overall)


Other colleagues and I have struggled for more than three years to find resources to finance a project aimed

to halt the ecological decline of one of the last remaining coastal woodlands of central Italy: the wood of Palo Laziale, 40 km west of Rome. On three occasions our proposal was rejected. After I attended this course and secured the certificate on July 2016, the project proposal passed the selection as first-ranked LIFE project at the first attempt! The right satisfaction after so much work and many weeks spent in the classroom. During the Programme, I have definitely got tools, methods and very useful tips to uplift my scientific background into high-level project designing skills.


3) Would you describe the project that was awarded? What is your role in the consortium?


The project LIFE PRIMED “restoration, management and valorisation of PRIority habitats of MEDiterranean coastal areas” (LIFE17 NAT /GR/ 000511) aims to improve the conservation status of habitats and species living in the protected areas of Palo Laziale wood and Nestos Delta, Natura 2000’s sites located in Italy and Greece, respectively. The project is working to develop and scale up innovative environmental engineering solutions and promote community engagement and nature-based tourism. I am the Project Manager of this project, a role of great responsibility, that also makes me proud. Certainly, those weeks in Brussels served me to acquire management skills which I could hardly gain anywhere else.


4) Overall, how do you think the IMES programme helped you to make this qualitative leap in your career ? Which are the determinant skills that it conferred to you in order to write a successful project?


I learned how to proceed with order in structuring an idea in a coherent framework. I had never heard before

of problems and objectives trees, or logical framework, “mates” that are now core part of my job routine. In addition, I became familiar with the proper language and terminology: long-term strategy, sustainability and replicability. Such expressions became almost my “life-mottos”.


5) To someone that’s considering applying to this course, would you recommend it and why?


I can certainly recommend the IMES programme. The people arranging this course are among the best professionals I have ever met in my life. The schedule is well-prepared, the work-load is quite affordable and in line with the lessons flow. The classrooms are usually multicultural and age-mixed. If you are willing to

understand how the EU machine works, you must first connect yourself with the Brussels Bubble. Breathe EU policies and programmes, walk with your own feet in the EU institutions’ buildings. You have two choices: do it by yourself or, just like I did, entrust one of the best Europe mother house’s Cicerone. I am pretty sure, you already made your choice.

Il Master in Global Economics and Social Affairs (GESAM) è un programma internazionale organizzato dalla prestigiosa Università Ca' Foscari di Venezia, in collaborazione con l'Organizzazione Internazionale del Lavoro. Il programma del Master offre una vasta gamma di discipline interessanti, dall'economia, dalle relazioni internazionali alle discipline giuridiche,tenute interamente in lingua  inglese. GESAM prepara leader del futuro ad affrontare sfide globali, e fornisce agli studenti le competenze essenziali per identificare e interpretare le problematiche a livello internazionale e le loro tendenze. Il Master è progettato per persone che desiderano intraprendere una carriera internazionale e acquisire competenze manageriali al fine di coniugare tendenze di mercato e competitività con la sempre crescente necessità di promuovere lo sviluppo sostenibile con particolare attenzione agli aspetti sociali e ambientali. L'ultima parte del corso è una Summer School a Ginevra, inoltre mentre si redige la tesi finale lo studente avrà la possibilità di frequentare un periodo di studio e ricerca presso una delle istituzioni partner dell’università. Quest'anno è la sua quinta edizione e sono aperte le iscrizione a questo straordinario Master internazionale

Qui di seguito è riportata un’interessante intervista fatta ad Alessia, una studentessa che ha già frequentato il corso GESAM. Leggendo il suo percorso capirai perchè il Master-GESAM è unico nel suo genere.


Perchè hai scelto il Master GESAM?  

A: Ho scelto il Master GESAM perché era il compromesso perfetto per avvicinarmi a discipline nuove per me, quali l'economia ed il diritto, pur collegandosi ai miei studi precedenti e all'approfondimento della lingua Inglese. Inoltre, fungeva da importante 'ponte' tra il mondo accademico e quello lavorativo, con la possibilità di trascorrere un periodo di ricerca e studio all'estero.  


Pensi che sia stato utile svolgere il Master interamente in lingua inglese?

A: Il fatto che sia interamente svolto in lingua Inglese è sicuramente un valore aggiunto. In un mondo globalizzato come quello in cui viviamo, la Lingua inglese ha un'importanza chiave per la comunicazione e la diplomazia internazionale. Inoltre, la possibilità di interfacciarsi con Docenti ed esperti provenienti da tutto il mondo permette l'acquisizione di un quadro generale più ampio e approfondito.


Il corpo docenti del Master GESAM si compone di Professori universitari, di Funzionari delle Organizzazioni non governative e delle Istituzioni e di Tecnici, sia nazionali che internazionali, esperti in ambito economico, giuridico e sociale. Condivideresti con noi un ricordo positivo della formazione in aula che più ti è rimasto impresso?

A: Nel corso delle settimane di lezione è possibile approfondire diversi aspetti, a seconda dei temi trattati. Ho apprezzato moltissimo le analisi e i confronti studenti-docente, volti ad uno scambio di pareri, talvolta contrastanti, ma sempre costruttivi.


Com’è stata l’esperienza della Summer School a Ginevra?

A: La Summer School è stata la ciliegina sulla torta, abbiamo visto la teoria delle lezioni diventare pratica. Abbiamo avuto modo di visitare gli Headquarters dell'ILO, delle United Nations e del WTO, e anche di visitare la splendida città di Ginevra.


Il Master GESAM offre agli studenti la possibilità di svolgere lo stage in diverse realtà, in Italia o all’estero, presso Ong, Centri di Ricerca, Imprese, Banche, Istituzioni, costruendo una proposta personalizzata e adeguata alle esigenze di ogni studente. Com’è stata la tua esperienza di internship?

A: Ho svolto il mio stage presso un'azienda che intrattiene rapporti commerciali con l'estero e che mi ha dato la possibilità di sfruttare molto la mia conoscenza di diverse lingue straniere. Ma le opportunità proposte erano davvero tantissime: Ong, Organizzazioni Internazionali, Centri di ricerca.


A chi consiglieresti di iscriversi al Master GESAM?

A: Sicuramente a chi vuole intraprendere la carriera diplomatica e politica, ma anche a chi è interessato alla gestione aziendale volta all'internalizzazione delle imprese.


Oggi, di cosa ti stai occupando?

A: Una volta terminato il master, ho deciso di iscrivermi alla Magistrale in Relazioni Internazionali considerati sia la possibilità di accedere direttamente al secondo anno e sia i programmi d'esame molto inerenti a i temi del Master. Dopo la laurea vorrei rimanere nell'ambito internazionale, ma non so ancora in quale parte nel mondo!

Everyone has already heard for certain about the emerging professional figure of the EU Project Manager, especially those who landed in the European capital of Brussels. Is it your dream to deal with European Policies?


Funding Projects are your cup of tea? You should definitely dare to learn how to turn your passion into work! The EU project manager is a job profile that can be found within the EU Institutions, Consultancies, NGOs and Think-Tanks.

Project Managers are change agents: they use their negotiation expertise, analytical and research skills to inspire a sense of shared purpose within the project team. But it is not enough: good personal abilities should be backed by deep knowledge of technical terms and notions in order to succeed in the monitoring of EU policies and funding programmes, identification of calls for proposals and drafting of EU projects. Furthermore, EU project managers should have very good communication and interaction skills since they have to constantly take care and enlarge their network of contacts to be able to define the best projects consortia. Then, they are in charge of activities in the field of financial management, quality assessment, and management, reporting, communication campaigns and organization of events.


Project Cycle Management, EU project, and procurement procedures are milestones for this profession. Do you want to learn more about what this might be about? It’s easy!


Join the International Masters in European Studies and fly to Brussels! Since 2004, the IMES programme has been training students eager to improve their knowledge of the European Union structure, functioning and policies, and to acquire practical skills and sounding understanding of the EU funding programmes. The Master participants are awarded a Diploma in EU Policy Advisory and Project Consultancy in EU funding programmes, enriching their professional profile with those competencies which are more and more required at the EU level and not only.

The added value of the Master, along with the setting in the city core of the European Union, derives from the long-lasting collaboration between the European Desk of the Belgian-Italian Chamber of Commerce and the Institute of the European Studies of the Université Catholique de Louvain-La-Neuve, one of Belgium’s and Europe’s leading universities since 1425. This partnership allows students to gain a precise and in-depth overview of the European Institutions, thanks to the expertise of the UCL, and a hands-on experience on the drafting of grants and tenders provided by the experts working on a daily base on the field of the Belgian-Italian Chamber of Commerce.

The Master with its combination between learning-by-doing and theoretic approaches is an opportunity for participants to enter the EU job market which requires proactive and well-prepared people.

During the whole Master, students are followed by experts, advisors and lobbyists working in Brussels and who share their experiences to help students to upgrade their careers and to enhance their opportunities. Furthermore, students’ communicative and interpersonal skills are tested through group-works and presentations which are keys competencies for Policy Advisors and Project Consultants. Besides, the Master gives access to a series of tools which have the main purpose of helping students to develop their attractiveness in the job market. A good instance for what has been said is the Job Link Module, a session of one-to-one meetings with a professional recruiter who will give advice to refine the students' CVs. Moreover, the Belgian-Italian Chamber of Commerce is concretely engaged in including the Master attendants in its wide network by offering them the CV Book tool.


This publication is sent to hundreds of European organizations, companies and associations in Brussels and throughout Europe and allows the employers to select the most suitable candidates for their organization.


Don’t wait any longer and enhance your chances to be the employee that the future needs!

The Global Economics and Social Affairs Master-GESAM is an international course organised by the outstanding University Ca’ Foscari in Venice, in collaboration with the International Labour Organization. The Master’s degree programme provides a wide range of interesting disciplines, from economics, global affairs to legal disciplines, entirely taught in English. The GESAM programme prepares future leaders, who can face global challenges, and equips students with the essential skills to identify and interpret global issues and their trends. The Master is designed for people who wishes to undertake an international career and acquire management skills in order to combine market and competitiveness trends with the ever-increasing need to promote sustainable development with special attention to social and environmental aspects. The last part of the course is a Summer School in Geneva, furthermore while working on the final dissertation the student will have the chance to attend a period of study and research at one of the university partners of the GESAM. This year will be its fifth edition and the enrollment for this unique international Master is currently open


International Careers team interviewed Joanne Houston’s a former student attending GESAM. Let’s have a look and read  about the importance of choosing GESAM for her career and life!

Why did you choose Master GESAM?

J: Over the last few years I have developed an ever-increasing interest in economic sciences and their connection to social issues. Before starting the Master program, I attended courses such as International Trade, Labor Economics, Foreign Direct Investment and Financial Crisis, that make me analyze the connection between economics, politics and social phenomena. This allowed me to understand that the political and institutional system is closely related to its economic development, which, in turn, strongly influences social phenomena. So, the elements that most pushed me to choose this Master were firstly the chance to deepen this complexity, furthermore to understand which aspects are to be considered fundamental for a sustainable economical approach, are. The way the Master is shaped, pushed me to choose it. Thanks to lectures, workshops, internships and theses, it offers varied solutions, and therefore the possibility to observe issues from different points of view.

Do you think it was useful to follow the Master's course in English?

J: Yes, a lot. A Masters in English makes possible to gather not only students from different cultures, but also teachers. During the Master's Degree, I could follow lectures taught from teachers of different countries, such as: Italy, China, France, Germany and Switzerland. This was extremely interesting, as it allowed me to experience various teaching methods; in addition it gave me the possibility to have a confrontation with new points of view. Carrying out a Master's degree in English is also more practical, because it allows to write the dissertation and address topics in the most esteemed/ required language for an employment.


The Faculty Committee consists of University professors, of Officers of Non-Governmental Organizations and Institutions and Technicians, both national and international, experts in the economic, legal and social fields. Would you share with us the most positive memory fixed on your mind about a lecture in class?

J: I really appreciate to have lessons with professors of several background. Every single day I could take advantage from a different teaching method, which made the whole programme more fascinating. Raymond Saner and Lichia were among the first professors we had. Fantastic, like many others! They challenged us, from the first moment, they motivated us to think about very interesting as complicated issues. With them we have deepened Sustainable Development Goals, from one hand through a more traditional lecture, and from the other hand through a more interactive activities. For example, we were divided into two groups and we played a simulation game in order to find a solution to problems in relation with Sustainable Development Goals. In few hours thanks to this kind of activity I had the chance to understand how difficult it is to tackle topics related to sustainability, because you need to consider several perspectives.


What about the Summer School experience in Geneva?

J: Very interesting! First of all, I had the opportunity to visit a new city and to meet all my classmates a month later the end of the lessons. Together, we followed interesting presentations and lessons at the International Labor Organization (ILO), we learned a lot of this institution during the weeks in Venice. This allowed us to look more closely at how the ILO works, and to better understand its structure. Some officials of this institution, we met, talked to us about some of their projects. We also had the chance to see again some professors, known in Venice, during lessons we have had before the Summer School experience. The last day in Geneva was instead dedicated to guided visits to the World Trade Organization and the United Nations, another amazing experience.

Thanks to the Master -GESAM students are offered the opportunity to apply for an internship. The Master-GESAM arranges internships to students in several working environments, in Italy or abroad, at NGOs, Research Centres, Enterprises, Banks, Institutions, in order to create a suitable solution tailored to the needs of each student. How was your internship experience?

J: Currently, I am doing an internship in Brussels at CSR Europe. I've been in Belgium for three months, and I'm halfway through my internship experience. I am lucky to work with experts in the field of sustainability and social responsibility, which is allowing me to deepen the topics covered in the Master, and to learn more. I work with people who are passionate about their work, prepared, and available all the time, in a lively and very interesting city. This experience helped me to affirm my interest in working in the field of sustainability for the forthcoming scenarios, in an international environment. Therefore, I can say that my internship experience has been, and still is very interesting. An advice: organize well and on time because many organizations and institutions have precise deadlines for the applications of traineeships.

Who would you recommend to enroll in the Master-GESAM?

J: I would recommend Master-GESAM to all those interested in learning more about issues related to sustainability, work, international law, anyone is interested in deepening the connection between economy and social issues, and to those who are generally interested in understanding deeply the link between economic, social and political contexts. I would also recommend this Master to those who want to put themselves to the test. Certainly, I had the opportunity to share the study experience with students from different educational paths, which allowed me to consider topics from new points of view.

What are you in now?

J: At the moment I am in Brussels, where I am doing an internship at CSR Europe, an organization that deals with projects related to corporate social responsibility. In particular, I deal with projects related to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the circular economy, topics that strongly fascinate me. Thanks to many of the lectures attended during the Master's Degree, I had the opportunity to deepen the SDGs from different points of view, something that is helping me a lot in this experience. This Master and my current internship experience give me the opportunity to get into the world of corporate social responsibility more deeply, and convinced me to look for future opportunities of employment in the field of sustainability.

R: I remember when one of my colleagues asked to a professor of the ILO International Training Centre how is scheduled a typical day of an International Organization Officer. It impressed me that the professor was not at all embarrassed by this kind of question, actually, he was glad to answer. All lecturers, we had, were always very open and available to clarify any kind of question, doubt or to give us further explanations and this, in my opinion, is essential to better understand each topic and to establish a more sincere and direct relationship with people expert in the field.


D: What about the Summer School experience in Geneva?

R: Definitely a fruitful and interesting experience. On the one hand visits and courses at the International Labour Organization allowed students to be part of a real international institution and to have direct contact with its members. On the other hand Geneva is certainly a global hub for those who aim for an international career, therefore it was very stimulating to have the chance to visit such a city.


D: Thanks to the Master GESAM students are offered the opportunity to apply for an internship in several working environments, in Italy or abroad, at NGOs, Research Centers, Enterprises, Banks, Institutions, in order to create a suitable solution tailored to the needs of each student. How was your internship experience?

R: I’m currently doing a three-months internship at a Research Centre on climate change, because the courses of the Master on sustainability really fascinated me. I was curious to experience the reality of a research centre and understand the various aspects of climate change issue, so I’m pleased to have chosen this opportunity.


D: Who would you recommend to enroll in the Master GESAM?

R: I would recommend this Master to people, like me, who wonder whether they should undertake an academic or working career, because GESAM programme offers a variety of lecturers in different disciplines: law, economic, social rights and even scientific.


D: What are you in now?

R: I’m currently working as an intern, however my next step will be enrolling in International Relations, hoping to start an international career.

International Master in European Studies: come to Brussels to become EU Policy Advisor or EU Project Manager


The International Master in European Studies is organised jointly by the European Desk of the Belgian-Italian Chamber of Commerce and the Institute of European Studies of the Catholic University of Louvain to prepare students to work as EU Policy Advisor and Project Manager.

This intensive Master is organized in a 3-month schedule, enabling students to gain specific competencies and skills in a short period of time. Students will have the possibility to gain knowledge on the European Union institutional structure, functioning and policies, as well as get knowledge about EU funding methods and Project Cycle Management. The Master teaching methodology is a practice-oriented approach, which aims at transferring knowledge through a learning-by-doing process. A limited number of 30 students are admitted to the Master: they are from different countries and diverse educational backgrounds.

The Master’s programme is composed of three sections:

In the first section, the topic of the European construction is analysed from the historical, juridical and economic points of view. The main European policies, strategies and monetary agreements are here examined. This is the basis of the theoretical knowledge needed for Lobbying and Project Management.

The second section focuses on learning the mechanisms, tools and criteria for designing and managing successful EU-funded projects and tenders. The student learns through a learning-by-doing approach, with the support of case studies and interactive workshops. The lessons and the practical activities are held by professional EU Advisors, who have years of experience in planning, advising and providing technical assistance to SMEs, NGOs, think-tanks, public entities, and international organizations.

In the third section, several seminars at the European institutions are organized in order to meet EU officers and to have a direct contact with professionals. This section aims also to provide students with a wide vision of the different realities operating on the Brussels area in the European field.

The Job Link module is one of the master’s strengths: it is a good start for the entrance in the Brussels job market. It provides the support to students in further developing their career path by a seminar and the one-to-one meetings with a recruiter. The CV of the students will be included in a CV Book which is sent to various organizations and companies in Brussels. If students find an internship, the BICC will support them with the drafting of the contract and offering the trainee insurance
