Studying in partnership with LMU Munich this summer

The University of Cambridge International Summer Programmes is launching
a four-week programme building on the close relationship between
Cambridge and LMU Munich.

This new programme will be running from 02 to 29 August 2020 and was
designed primarily for students from both universities as an opportunity
to focus on European Studies. Established researchers and experts in
each University will deliver talks, which set European issues in their
historical context and go on to address the current turbulent political
situation. As we enter an extraordinary phase in the history of Europe,
fundamental to this programme is the opportunity for discussion and
debate between lecturers and students from two leading institutions
directly affected by these changes.

For more information, please see our website at
www.ice.ca.ac.uk/intsummer [1] or contact the International Summer
Programmes at intenq@ice.cam.ac.uk .

We will be awarding a non-dilutive prize worth £100K, free lab space
and ongoing business and legal support to the team with the most

partners and mentors network, including senior executives from the likes
of McKinsey and Co, AstraZeneca, J A Kemp, IBM, Biorad, and others.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
