Ukraine: New Season of EU Study Days

During the upcoming academic year, four new study sessions will be conducted in west, central, south and eastern Ukraine.

The project intends to provide participants with knowledge on security issues in Ukraine and wider in Europe, on implementation of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement, on energy security, and people-to-people contacts, including the visa liberalization process, according to a press release from the EU Delegation in Kyiv.

In addition, participants will learn more about “education opportunities in European universities and become familiar with effective communication tools provided by new media”.

Everyone interested will be able to watch the broadcast of some lectures in real time here. Past lectures are also available at the web site.

More information about the EU Study Days and its earlier sessions is available on the programme’s website and on Facebook or by email.

Since March 2013, the project has brought together more than 300 participants across Ukraine. The project gave a unique opportunity for participants to get in touch with EU official representatives including Ambassador Jan Tombinksi, representatives of the diplomatic missions of EU member states, Ukrainian officials and members of European businesses operating in Ukraine, as well as leading experts, who attended the events.

Participants also took part in simulation games resembling the EU-Ukraine association talks or the Council meeting dedicated to the Russia-Ukraine crisis.

The EU Study Days is an education project initiated by the Delegation of the European Union in Ukraine. It provides the opportunity for Ukrainian university students and graduates to gain deeper and wider knowledge about the European Union and EU-Ukraine relations from key experts in the field and from different viewpoints.
