Trans-Atlantic Consortium for European Union Studies & Simulations

EuroSimTM is an annual international, intercollegiate simulation of the European Union (EU). This conference brings together over 225 students and faculty from more than 20 colleges and universities in the United States and Europe, offering participants a unique opportunity to work and learn in an exciting multicultural environment. In addition, by bringing American and European students together, EuroSim provides students with first-hand experience in transatlantic relations.

Each EuroSim event has a specific theme related to the real-world policy agenda of the EU, helping students to deepen their knowledge of the EU and hone their public speaking, negotiating, leadership and diplomatic skills. EuroSim takes place over four days with its location rotating among host institutions in Europe and North America. EuroSim 2012 was hosted by Wthe University of Lower Silesia in Wroclaw, Poland. EuroSim 2013 was hosted by East Stroudsburg University, in Pennsylvania; the theme concerned data retention and protection.

EuroSim 2014 will will take place at the University of Twente in the Netherlands. The theme will center around social policy with an emphasis on minimum wage. Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY, will host EuroSim 2015 with a theme still to be determined.

A TV news story in Wroclaw featured EuroSim 2012.
