The CEPOL European Joint Master Programme (EJMP), an EU academic programme addressed to senior law enforcement officers or experts in general management and specialist positions who intend to gain or improve competences in the field of international and European police and law enforcement management, will be further developed in 2018 with the intention to initiate a new academic programme as of 2020. For this purpose, the Executive Director of CEPOL, Mr Detlef Schröder, recently appointed a group of 6 academic experts: Tiina Koivuniemi, Finland; Eckhard Schroeter, Germany; Mihaela Gavrila, Italy; Paul Caruana, Malta; Sergio Felgueiras, Portugal and Pablo De Diego Ángeles, Spain. The experts, together with Alessia Maisano and Peter Davidson from CEPOL, will develop a replacement programme to the existing CEPOL Master; ‘Policing in Europe’.

The need for a new Master Programme is mainly due to the CEPOL Regulation change together with the existing 4-year accreditation expiring.

The expert group mandate is the following:

EXPECTED RESULTS - Measurable and quantifiable output(s)

I. A complex programme prepared for accreditation together with a budget proposal to be presented to the CEPOL Management Board for its approval.

II. Key elements of the documents to be prepared are the following:

  1. Development of a detailed curriculum with a duration of 2 years as a part time study achieving the level of a Master Degree (EQF 7) while taking advantage of existing CEPOL training portfolio elements.
  2. Consideration of incorporating other relevant joint MA programmes i.e. the Frontex Master Programme.
  3. Description of the faculty/ies including its academic background, ECTS credits, eligibility of teachers, students and administrative procedures
  4. Analysis and incorporation of any recommendations following the EJMP 2015-17 evaluation
  5. Proposal of a tentative budget ensuring sustainability for programmes running simultaneously
  6. Production of a Consortium Agreement describing legal aspects of the Master Programme such as, but not limited to, Joint Master or Joint Program implementation, roles and responsibilities, implementation structure etc.

The expert group will have its first meeting at CEPOL HQ from the 16-18 July. It is expected to deliver a revised Master Programme proposal for Management Board approval in May 2019.
