SummerSchool2011a 72dpi 2011

July, 25-31th, 2011, Sumy National Agrarian University welcomed the participants of the International Summer School “Eurointegration: Theory and Practice”.

Among the participants were: Sumy NAU students, representatives of Agrarian University – Plovdiv, Bulgaria, and of Warsaw Life Sciences University – SGGW, Poland. The project was co-financed by the Fund for Incentives of CASEE, the "ICA Regional Network for Central and South Eastern Europe”. The project coordinator is Oksana Zamora, PhD, senior teacher at the Foreign Economics Management and Eurointegration chair, international project coordinator of Sumy NAU. There were also two trainers engaged: Non-formal Education and European Integration Expert, Youth Peace Ambassador of Council of Europe in Ukraine, project manager of Sumy NGO “Center for European Initiatives” Julia Sakunova; and associate professor at the Foreign Economics Management and Eurointegration chair Tatyana Khvorost, PhD.

The distinctive feature of the event was an interesting combination of European interactive training technologies, national and cultural communication and theoretical informationl sessions on the Eurointegration topic. The leaders of the Bulgarian and Polish groups – Krasimir Aleksandrov and Agata Malak-Rawlikowska – provided exclusive lectures on the issues of EU membership experience of their native countries.

SummerSchool2011b72dpiThis summer school was a unique event on international level for Sumy NAU, where  foreign students from the partner universities of Bulgaria and Poland participated. It allowed students to obtain theoretical knowledge in Eurointegration, to share youth life experiences with their colleagues from European countries which had recently entered EU. In addition they received practical skills in a number of useful spheres: teamwork, leadership, project design, intercultural communication, interactive training technologies implementation. The peak of the summer school programme was a role game elaborated by Julia Sakunova dedicated to the topic of opening new opportunities for the EU youth.

Students considered this event to be very valuable and useful. They discovered a wide range of possibilities to practice their English, to get new friends and contacts from abroad, to share experiences through social activities, to obtain theoretical knowledge and practical skills in the spheres which they’ll meet in their professional path. But the main achievement of the summer school is that students, as they mentioned, were strongly inspired to develop their own activities in future.

 

 


Summer School Delta 2014: International Summer School "Plant and Fish Biodiversity in the Danube Delta"

casee danube delta summer school2014

Within the frame of the CASEE network, the International Summer School “Plant and Fish Biodiversity in Danube Delta”  was organized by the University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine Cluj-Napoca (USAMV Cluj-Napoca)  from 5.-17.07.2014.

Students from BOKU, USAMV Cluj-Napoca, the Czech University of Life Sciences Prague (CULS) and Banat’s University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine Timișoara (USAMVB) are participating this event.

After the welcome and the introduction by the Vice Rector of USAMV Cluj-Napoca Andrei D. Mihalca, the students were introduced to different topics by experts in the field (fish diversity: Daniel Cocan (USAMV), fish migration: Andreas Zitek (BOKU), grassland biodiversity: Corina Cătană (USAMV),biodiversity concepts, patterns and measurement:

Radu Constantinescu (USAMV),forests: Florian Borlea (USAMV), invertebrates: Vladimír Vrabec (CULS), birdlife: Attila Sándor (USAMV).

During the field trip to the St. George arm of the Danube Delta, the students have the possibility to directly experience the rich biodiversity, and to better understand the theoretical principles behind the analysis and interpretation of biodiversity patterns, also taking into account the needs of local communities depending on the productivity and health of the Danube Delta ecosystem.

Different scenarios of the potential development of the Danube Delta are discussed including possibilities to support the populations of the endangered sturgeon species of the Danube, e.g. by building fish passes at the Iron Gates I and II. Finally potential future joint activities within the CASEE network of universities are explored, and will strengthen the existing good relations between BOKU and the other CASEE partners. Since many years, successful collaboration exists especially between USAMV Cluj-Napoca and BOKU.
