The 29th edition of the IMES – International Master in European Studies ended in July 2019: time really does move faster when you put yourself out there facing new challenges! But on the IMES board we are addicted to new adventures as we are already looking forward to the 30th edition, starting on the 16th of September.

Today, 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.

 

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!

 

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.

 

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.

 

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”.

 

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.

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

 Il Full-time MBA - Master in Business Administration - della UCAM è stato strutturato per sviluppare il potenziale di leadership dei partecipanti, dando loro una prospettiva globale, preparandoli, con un approccio basato su situazioni reali, ad un mercato del lavoro in continuo cambiamento.

Il Master, infatti, prepara gli studenti ad avviare un'attività in proprio come imprenditori, lavorare come

amministratori d’impresa, economisti, amministratori di progetto ed esperti in risorse umane, o a ricoprire qualsiasi altra posizione manageriale in un'azienda.

Per raggiungere questo obiettivo, il corpo docente è composto sia da accademici che da dirigenti di imprese che sanno assistere gli studenti nello sviluppo delle loro conoscenze nel campo del  business.

Con un totale di 60 CFU, il MBA è un Master ufficiale riconosciuto in tutta Europa ed offre accesso diretto ai programmi di dottorato offerti dall’Università.

Può accedere al Master chiunque sia interessato ad internazionalizzare il proprio curriculum, e a migliorare le proprie prospettive di carriera internazionale.
