The University of Economics in Katowice has become the leader of the project “Visegrad Group Cooperation within the EU: Challenging the Rise of Euroscepticism” financed by the International Visegrad Fund. The main idea of the project is to integrate students and scientists for a close cooperation of Visegrad countries within the EU structures.
The challenges faced by the four countries of the Visegrad Group are similar and the project implementers believe that they can be tackled more effectively together. The aim of the scientists is to counter the recently noted tendencies of increasing Euroscepticism by creating scientific and political content, as well as organizing workshops and public debates.
The project is implemented by four public universities: University of Economics in Katowice (coordinating partner), Mendel University in Brno (Czech Republic), National University of Public Services in Budapest (Hungary) and University of Economics in Bratislava (Slovakia).
