Global Research Management GRIM


Global Legal Research and Information Management (GRIM) is a ten day Erasmus Intensive Programme. It is organised under the roof of the European Academy of Legal Theory by several partner universities.

The programme is jointly offered by:

  • University of Stockholm
  • Freie Universität Berlin
  • University of Vienna
  • Université Libre de Bruxelles
  • University of Lucerne
  • Jagiellonian University Cracow
  • Goethe-University of Frankfurt/Main
  • University of Pécs
  • EUI Florence and University of Bologna
  • Globalisation and Legal Theory PhD programme (Univ. of Antwerp, Glasgow, and Tilburg)

The next GRiM Winter School takes place from 16 to 28 February 2014 at Stockholm University.

Participation in GRiM is open to law students enrolled at one of the partner universities. Participation is limited to four students from each partner university. Applications have to be made directly to the GRiM contact person of the partner university concerned. The partner universities apply a common selection policy, including academic excellence, international experience, gender equality and equality of people with disablities.
Successful applicants will receive a grant covering tuition, 75% of travel costs, and a daily housing subsistence lump sum (approx. EUR 25,-). Accommodation in a standard 4-bedroom, booked by the hosting university, does not involve any additional costs for the students; for participants organising their own accommodation, the daily housing subsistence lump sum of EUR 25,- will be reimbursed along with the travel costs upon completion of the programme.
In return, students are expected to attend all parts of the module programme during course weeks in Stockholm and actively contribute to course exercises and discussions.

Travel Costs

Participants who have succesfully concluded the course can ask for reimbursement of 75% of their travel costs (on the arrival and departure day, incl. local transportation from/to airport at place of residence and at destination; local transportation outside the arrival and departure day is not covered).

Participation in GRiM is part of the official course program of partner universities involved. Participating students are entitled to receive academic recognition in case of successful completion of all course requirements: GRiM comprises 4 ECTS credits.

Candidates wishing to apply for participation in GRiM have to complete the application form (see download box on the right) and send it together with a CV (please use the official Europass-CV template; max. 3 pages incl. photograph) and the additional supporting documents to their local GRiM coordinator by Nov 15, 2013. Successful applicants will be notified during December 2013.
