ENP PhD trip 2014: Belgium

After a successful PhD trip to different institutions in Denmark and Sweden in October 2012, a second PhD trip was planned by the PhD candidates of the Environmental Policy Group. This time we went to Belgium to visit the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences of the KU Leuven and the European institutions in Brussels. The objective was to explore the environmental science-policy interface with fellow researchers, European NGOs and decision-making institutions in Brussels. For more information about our trip, please read the attached report.

Although we were on a tight schedule, we managed to squeeze in some time for cultural, touristic and gastronomic experiences which made the PhD trip even more successful.

We would like to thank the Environmental Policy Group, the research schools WASS and SENSE, and the LEB fund for their financial support.
