Can EU CAP it?

The international think tank on european agriculture and rural development “Groupe de Bruges” has developed a comprehensive e-learning course on the new Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). We expect that this might be of interest to many of our readers.

The following is The Groupe de Bruges presentation of their course. If any of you follows up on this, we would love to hear from your experiences!

The e-learning course is part of a larger project: “Can EU CAP it?”, which involves different types of learning materials (game, videos, course). All materials are accessible through the same e-platform. A more detailed explanation of the whole project can be found in the attached multi-lingual brochure.

The courseBilde 22, named CAP Pro English, is now fully available from 27 November 2014. It consist of eight modules, all prepared by academics and other renowned experts. The eight modules in total will have the equivalent of 4 ECTS points. The course will also soon be available in other three languages: French, German and Italian. In the attached CAP Pro flyer you can find more details. Thanks to a grant by the European Commission we can offer the CAP Pro course for a very attractive price. For students the whole course is only € 9,95. This includes a certificate (in pdf) for those who successfully complete the whole course.

The CAP Pro course is also open for others who wish to quickly update their current knowledge on the CAP reform. For non-students the price is € 99,95. Substantial discounts of up to 75% are available for organisations that become a partner or supporter of the project. More information on how to become a partner or supporter is attached.
