Besides joint research projects in the respective field of European and International Law to be developed by individual partners among themselves, a joint Graduate School of Excellence in European and International Law in South East Europe will be established.

It will  give the attending post-graduate students the opportunity to improve their knowledge in a specialized area of law and define their own detailed knowledge and research portfolio. The school will in this context focus on raising interest with regard to the issue of cross-border regional and local cooperation, the EU neighbourhood policy in general and the gradual approximation of neighbouring states to EU legal standards. The Graduate School will contain attendants of all partner institutions.
