In addition to its regular activities (Thematic Seminars, Outreach and Academic Programme), the Intelligence College in Europe organises specific events for its Members, and partakes in others. The events involving the College are of different nature (official ceremonies, specific meetings on intelligence-related topics, etc).
Promoted by the Italian Intelligence System, “A Thesis for National Security” is an initiative dedicated to university students, who graduated presenting dissertations on intelligence-related topics. The fifth edition (2021-2022) offered 10 prizes worth €2,500 each for the best master thesis, rated no less than 105/110, on the following topics: geopolitics and international relations; threats to national security; law, doctrine and history of intelligence; economic and financial security. The Award has seen a constant increase in the number of applications over the years. With the participation of graduates from 50 Italian universities, the last edition confirms the value of the relationship between intelligence and academia to promote a shared culture of security.
