New Eastern Europe and the Jan Nowak-Jeziorański College of Eastern Europe are looking for young professionals, researchers and future think tankers willing to join us for a week long New Eastern Europe School. Our programme is designed to provide participants with a better understanding of how think tanks works, what it means to be a think tanker and ho to gain skills needed for a future role in expert organisation.
The Winter School will take place December 3 – 9 in Poland and Germany. The project will consist of meetings, workshops and cultural events, starting in Poznan in Poland, and concluding in Berlin in Germany.
The target audience of the Winter School is young (up to age 30) and/or aspiring researchers, academics, students who are based in the EU and want to learn more about how think tanks work, what is their role in building resilient democracies and gain experience from a Central European perspective.
The New Eastern Europe Winter School is funded by the European Commission under the Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values Programme (CERV) thanks to the Operating Grant titled “Protecting European Values – A proactive approach to strengthening and building European democracy by countering hostile threats aimed at EU values and bridging existing divides”.
The organisers cover programme fees (accommodation, meals, entry tickets) and can reimburse part of the travel costs (up to 200 EUR) to and from the School.
