 THESEUS Summer School for Young Leaders

• bring together young excellent professionals and researchers

• address global challenges and European answers

• promote transnational interdisciplinary networks

The THESEUS Summer Schools tackle the internal and external challenges which Europe faces. Climate change, energy policy, migration, demographic developments and terrorism are global challenges for which a new European generation has to find ways forward. These issues concern not only political decision-makers but all actors in European societies. At the same time they require complex interdisciplinary international solutions.

THESEUS aims at participants with different national, cultural and professional backgrounds, enabling them to create a sustainable network of young leaders.
