The event offers participants an opportunity to introduce themselves, and also take part in joint activities with various institutions, international, civil and youth organizations and their peers, as well as to build relationships, Adrián Nagy, Associate Professor of the Faculty of Economics, told

The topics of this year's event included sustainability, the future of democracy, coexistence, next year's European Union elections, the EU labor market, war and migration, as well as student mobility programs.  PhD students of the Faculty of Economics of the University of Debrecen attended professional workshops, seminars and discussions.
