On December 2-3 2021, Ulysseus held its second Open Event since the start of the project. This was a face-to-face event and took place only one month after the first anniversary of the start of Ulysseus. This gathering was dedicated to the Conference on the Future of Europe (CoFoE), a unique and timely opportunity for European citizens to voice their opinions on Europe’s challenges and priorities.
Participants included students and university representatives, academics, researchers and staff members from the partner universities of the Ulysseus alliance: University of Seville in Spain, Université Cote D’Azur in France, University of Genoa in Italy, Technical University of Košice in Slovakia, MCI | The Entrepreneurial School® in Austria and the Haaga-Helia University of Applied Sciences in Finland.
