FEPS Young Academic Network
On Wednesday the 14th FEPS Young Academic Network conference opened in Vienna, Austria. Young Fabians Secretary, Alexander Adranghi and member Richard Penny participated at the conference.
The five day conference focused on building the network and providing a peer-review on submitted paper abstracts before arranging into working groups based on common research interest. It marks the beginning of a collaborative research process within the working groups that will lead to the published papers.
The Foundation of European Progressive Studies or FEPS is a publicly-funded pan-European thinktank which consist of a network of member organisations across Europe. It provides independant research for the Party of European Socialists (PES). It establishes an intellectual crossroad between social democracy and the European project, putting fresh thinking at the core of its action. As a platform for ideas , FEPS works in close collaboration with social democratic organisations, and in particular national foundations and thinktanks across Europe, to tackle the challenges that Europe faces today. The Fabian Society is one of the three UK members.
The FEPS Young Academics Network was established in March 2009 with an aim to gather promising progressive PhD candidates and young PhD researchers ready to use their academic experience in a debate about the Next Europe. Realised with the support of Renner Institut, the project has gathered in its course more than 50 members. Their exchanges and interdisciplinary research have resulted in a number of stimulating studies, providing a relevant contribution to the European progressive movement.
