Unlike in previous years, the annual excursion of the EU in depth studies of the Hochschule Kehl  was carried out digitally this year due to the Covid-crisis. Although the group was not able to visit the institutions on site, the students gained a variety of insights and were able to speak with different experts of European institutions.Over the course of an entire week, lectures were offered by employees at the Brussels institutions and offices. During the week, these provided unique insights behind the scenes of the heart of Europe. This was possible despite travel restrictions imposed due to Corona via zoom calls prepared and debriefed by Dr. Eppler and Dialer.


The week started with a digital tour of Brussels' European district.
In the afternoon, they continued at the Permanent Representation of the State of Baden-Württemberg to the EU, which was available for a Q&A. Jonathan Koch, Employee at the Federal Foreign Office Germany, then presented on working with the EU and fielded questions from the students.


Tuesday was all about the Council of the European Union. Culinary highlight of the day was the Belgian Fries Contest.


Wednesday was dedicated to the German cities and countries. Zoom Talks with the European Office of Stuttgart Region and with the Head of Office of MEP Deparnay Grunenberg were part of the agenda. He provided valuable insights into the daily tasks of a member of the European Parliament.


Thursday's topic was Multi-Level-Governance. The students took a closer look at the European Commission and Regional Policy and Cohesion Policy. In the afternoon, the Head of the Visitors Service at the Committee of Regions held an insightful lecture on the "Voice of the Regions" in Brussels. This was followed up by the Representative for the European Region Tyrol - South Tyrol - Trentino.
