The European Commission selects ESSEC Business School’s negotiation expertise to support its officials

The consortium led by the Institute for Research and Education on Negotiation of ESSEC Business School (ESSEC IRENE) with its partners – College of Europe and the European Institute of Public Administration – has won on May 28 2020 a European Commission’s public tender to continue providing executive negotiation support for senior officials of the European institutions in the next four years.

Within the framework of ESSEC IRENE’s Negotiators of Europe Program, based in Brussels and coordinated by Prof. Francesco Marchi with the support of Dr. Florent Blanc as educational manager, a solid pool of experts and academics from the consortium will organize several hundred days of executive training, coaching and support activities for the officials of the European Commission, the European Parliament, the General Secretariat of the Council, specialized EU Agencies across Europe, and for diplomats from the European External Action Service.

More than ever, negotiation proves to be a core leadership skill, both for internal consensus building, and for external partnership management. The new, 4-year long, framework contract confirms ESSEC Business School’s expertise in this area. This recognition is a strong marker of our school’s influence and of its impact capacity at European level.

“Together with its partners, ESSEC IRENE's ambition is to keep on innovating and tailoring high level negotiation support at the core of the European landscape. We are proud to bring this contribution to the consolidation of the European project, more important than ever in our unstable world” says Aurélien Colson PhD, Professor of Political Science and ESSEC IRENE Director.
