  • The events approach the specialists on different subjects of the European studies and suppose the participation of several faculties from the university, thus integrating academic resources from different subjects;

  • The target audience of the events is made of students, teachers, researchers - of different fields of specialization;

  • The project results will include resources from all the specializations in the field and aim at generating added value at the level of the educational and research competences in the field of studies related to the European integration;

  1. The opening towards the civil society

The project integrates the opening towards the civil society as a complementary priority, to support the promotion of the concept "The University in the society" - one of the strategic objectives of the University.

The project includes short lectures, roundtable talks, debates adapted to the needs for knowledge and vocational training of the public and private decision-making environment, as well as the series of conferences / workshops "The European Union: a multicultural reality" for the general public. All these aim both at the University contribution in disseminating knowledge about the European integration process and at the promotion of the fundamental European values, at the awareness of how important the Europe's cultural and historical diversity is as well as of the feeling of belonging to a common area of values and to the European citizenship, of tolerance and mutual understanding.
