The Jean Monnet Project of UPS at Sziget Festival 2022

 

As the Jean Monnet Chair of the bEU project, Boglárka Koller, PhD (Head of Department of European Studies, Vice Rector for International Affairs of UPS) had the opportunity to participate at an exciting roundtable discussion at the SZIGET Festival - one of Europe's largest music and cultural events in Europe - with Mátyás Maksi, acting head of the Representation of the European Commission in Budapest.

The audience’s main questions were centered around the current crisis areas of the EU, including the Russian-Ukrainian war and its multiple effects on the member states of the Union, the EU sanctions, the energy policy issues, the institutional challenges and the citizens' attitudes and trust in the EU.
Peter Rada, associate professor at the University of Public Service and promoter of the bEU project and the enthusiastic students of the International and European Advanced Studies College of UPS (NESZK) participated at the debate as well.

The current chair program of the Jean Monnet project (2021-2024) is designed to deepen the tutoring in EU studies. JM professors are encouraged to provide open education activities such as this roundtable discussion to increase the flexibility and accessibility of EU studies. Our university is proud that Boglárka Koller, PhD is one of these chair-holder professors.
