Researchers from universities in Rennes, Bologna and London manage a European scientific programme involving young researchers, the scientific community, students and the general public.

This is a Jean Monnet Network financed by the European Commission under the Erasmus + programme. Law-TTIP aims at analysing ongoing negotiations of the TTIP (Trade and Investment Partnership), the forthcoming agreement between the European Union and the United States of America and its legal impacts for the EU and third countries.

The project, which began in September 2016 and will finish in August 2019, will be supervised at University of Bologna (Italy) with the participation of Université de Rennes 1, and more specifically in the IODE laboratory (UMR CNRS 6262), by Professor Isabelle Bosse-Platière and Professor Cécile Rapoport.

The scientific team in Rennes is specifically in charge of the line of research concerning the institutional and procedural aspects of the TTIP and its impact on External Relations of the EU.

The two other members of the network are the International Research Centre on European Law of the University of Bologna (C.I.R.D.E) and the Centre of European Law at King's College, London (CEL).

In the framework of the project, a Jean Monnet Law-TTIP network website will provide resources for the general public and scholars.
