What are your expectations for this Contact Seminar?
Participation in such a seminar can be very beneficial for the university in different aspects. Firstly, the event can connect me to the other 199 representatives where we can negotiate possible cooperation through the available projects and programs. Secondly, I can benefit highly from meeting EU personnel to discuss the university's situation and its future plans and to negotiate possible facilitation and further involvement of the university in EU programs. Finally, I believe this is a unique chance to show the progress that the university has accomplished and that it will in the future.
