The EU Environmental Policies & Law (POLLEN) is a novel and intensive academic programme

organised by the Institute for European Studies in partnership with the Research Centre in Political Science and the the Environmental Law Centre (CEDRE) at Université Saint-Louis - Bruxelles.


In 2016, the European Commission selected this programme as a Jean Monnet Module (2016-2019).


The POLLEN Module aims to foster excellence-in-teaching in EU Environmental studies and consists of a two-week course of 43 teaching hours (staggered hours - from 15h30 to 19h30 including two Saturday mornings) covering the following areas:

EU Environmental Law and EU in Multilateral Negotiations

EU Climate Change and Energy Governance

EU Waste Management, Chemicals, and Nanotechnologies

Biodiversity, Agriculture, Food, & Trade


The POLLEN Module is aimed at Master and PhD students and practitioners in Law, Political Science, International and European Studies, but also in other environment-related areas (e.g. Life Sciences, Bioengineering).


Its added academic value relies on its interdisciplinary character. Confirmed speakers come from humanities and social sciences and from applied sciences. It thus exposes participants to a range of theoretical approaches and methodological skills, helping them bolster their career prospects and grasp the environmental challenges Europe faces today.
