FLEET | Future Leaders Europe Evening Talks 2022

Registration for the third year of the FLEET project is open!

We are pleased to announce the launch of the third edition of the Future Leaders Europe Evening Talks - a series of 10 sessions bringing 10 European experts to debate this year's theme 'EUROPE IN TRANSITION' with selected participants. The series of 10 lectures will take place between October 2022 and January 2023.

A series of ten evening sessions throughout the winter semester of 2022 will allow students to discuss a wide range of topics with experts from amongst high-ranking (current or former) Brussels officials, Ambassadors, Czech and European policy experts and decision makers, journalists and commentators. The sessions will take place every Monday at EUROPEUM’s premises (within the Prague Creative Center, Staroměstské náměstí 1, Prague 1) from 19:30 to 21:00. The talks will be structured into a short introductory lecture on the given topic by the expert (30 minutes maximum) and an open discussion of 60 minutes with strong emphasis on the Q & A structure for the participants. Unless specified otherwise, the talks will be held under the Chatham House Rule.

Every participant will obtain a certificate of attendance of the course and selected participants will be offered place at EUROPEUM’s international conferences and/or an opportunity to publish a blog post. Additionally, a research internship at EUROPEUM with prospects for further cooperation may be offered to the best participants. 
The one-time participation fee is 1980 CZK per selected applicant.
