Student Papers on State Aid and Public Procurement

Student Papers on State Aid and Public Procurement have been written by master students who attended the course of the same name, which is offered by the Faculty of Law of Maastricht University. The course is financed by the European Commission (Educational, Audiovisional and Culture Executive Agency) and is set up within the framework of the Life Long Learning Program. It was granted in 2011 after a successful application for a Jean Monnet Module.

EU Law Student Papers

These papers have been written by second and third bachelor students who attended the course “EU Law Foundations – The Institutional Functioning of the European Union”, which is part of the Bachelor Programme European Law School, offered by the Faculty of Law of the Maastricht University. In 2010 the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) awarded financial support to this course in the form of a Jean Monnet European Module (Lifelong Learning Programme).

Student Papers on Regulating Innovation Trade, and Uncertain Risks

Students involved in the MaRBLE project in the academic years 2010-2011 and 2013-2014, have been allowed to participate in pioneering interdisciplinary research investigating the complex relationships between science, society, politics and law. It offered students a chance to make a positive contribution to the emerging interfaculty research programme on risk, uncertainty, law and governance. They have analysed controversies around innovation where the risk aspects of trade and the trade aspects of risk are at stake, with a particular focus on the regulation of GMOs. These papers, written in the context of the course  'Regulating Innovation, Trade and Uncertain Risks' taught by Marjolein B.A. van Asselt and MCEL member Ellen Vos, have been collected in a single e-publication.
