Visegrad Summer School (VSS) is a project that has been shaping and educating generations of young citizens of Visegrad Group and neighboring countries for 18 years. Over the years, we have observed a change in priorities, policies, trends but especially in the profile of candidates and participants. This year, in spite of difficulties caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, VSS returns, focusing on two areas: Business and Innovation & Cultural Heritage, which seem distant but combined together give the opportunity to create an innovative and responsible approach to the current landscape. The laboratories run by qualified experts, the purpose of which will be to exchange views, gain knowledge and consult the participants’ own ideas, will contribute to the development of new optics, as well as the shaping of aspiring leaders of the V4 and the Central and Eastern Europe Region.
This year we received 110 applications from 23 countries located on 4 continents. During the recruitment process, the project team answered over 100 questions for which we would like to thank you!
We would like to meet, talk and exchange views with all candidates. Unfortunately, we cannot accept all applications. On July 5, a selected group of participants will meet at Villa Decius to get to know each other for the next 10 days, participate in inspirational workshops and lectures, work on individual projects and take part in study visits.
Congratulations to all selected candidates and we keep our fingers crossed for those remaining on the reserve list!
