CEC 2013

9th CENTRAL EUROPEAN CONFERENCE – 2013

Rajk László College for Advanced Studies organizes the 9th Central European Conference

that will be held from 10th to 15th March 2013 in Eger, Hungary. During the Conference the selected applicants will participate in the work of one of the sections. These sections will consist of lectures and workshops concerning relevant Central and Eastern European issues in connection with social entrepreneurship, innovation, monetary and fiscal policies, energy sustainability, economies of labour, education and regional political economy. The goal of the sections is to create an atmosphere which induces a fruitful debate among the participants in order to get to know each other and exchange experiences. We are expecting extrovert students capable discussing deep issues to join us as a member of an international team for a week.

Please find here the brochure of CEC.

The location of the Conference is the historic town of Eger in Northern Hungary. The town is best known for its castle, thermal baths, historic buildings (including the northernmost Turkish minaret), and red and white wines.

Introduction of the city by the Lonely Planet:

“Everyone loves Eger, and it’s immediately apparent why: the beautifully preserved baroque architecture gives the town a relaxed, almost Mediterranean, feel; it is the home of the celebrated Egri Bikavér (Eger Bull’s Blood) wine known the world over; and it is flanked by two of the Northern Uplands most inviting ranges. But these aren’t the only reasons Hungarians visit Eger: it was here that their forebears fended off the Turks for the first time during the 170 years of occupation in 1552.”
