2015 Warsaw Euro-Atlantic Summer Academy (WEASA)

Venue: Warsaw, Poland
Period: 29 June-10 July, 2015 (tbc)
Application deadline: February 28, 2015



The College of Europe, Natolin Campus, the German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) and the Polish American Freedom Foundation announce a call for applications for the third edition of the Warsaw Euro-Atlantic Summer Academy (WEASA).

Next year’s edition will be devoted to one of the most pressing issues of recent years - energy security. The participants will reflect on the impact of energy architecture on the global, regional and national markets and their broader influence on both domestic and foreign policy. They will also discuss the challenges and opportunities for assuring energy security in their respective countries, as well as within the European Union and in the United States.

We thus encourage up-and-coming policy analysts, experts, advisers, civil servants and journalists from the Eastern Partnership region (i.e. Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine), focusing on the issues of European integration, state transformation processes and transatlantic cooperation to submit their applications for WEASA’s 2015 edition.

Priority will be given to mid-career professionals with at least five years of experience in the aforementioned programmatic areas. The WEASA program will be delivered by prominent academics and analysts from leading European and American think tanks, as well as high-level officials and practitioners.

Travel and  accommodation will be covered by WEASA.
The WEASA 2015 edition is tentatively scheduled for 29 June-10 July, 2015.
Only short-listed candidates will be contacted for interview.


The participants will be selected through a competitive process from a cross-section of society, including state institutions, academia, think-tanks, media, and civil society organizations.

A person applying for participation in WEASA must meet the following eligibility criteria:

  • citizenship and permanent residence in one of the Eastern Partnership countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia,  Moldova, Ukraine;
  • higher education (Master's degree or equivalent);
  • minimum 5 years of professional experience;
