The Fulbright Program alumni from Czechia, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia are invited to apply for participation in WEASA – Warsaw Euro-Atlantic Summer Academy, taking place on July 9-20, 2018 at the Natolin Campus of the College of Europe (Warsaw, Poland).
WEASA is an annual summer school for mid-career professionals, mostly from the Eastern Partnership and Western Balkans. A wide range of policy analysts, experts, advisers, civil servants, NGO professionals, journalists, and journalists have taken part in the academy so far.
2018 edition will focus on digital topics and following ones will be covered:
- Journalism in a digital age, the fight against disinformation and misinformation
- The role that social media plays in democracy and diplomacy
- Two dimensions of cybersecurity: the personal and the institutional.
The Academy also provides an excellent opportunity to network with over 50 fellow professionals. The organizers look for mid-career professionals (usually those with at least five years of professional experience), who work as policy analysts, experts, advisers, civil servants, journalists, private sector specialists and in NGOs and are interested in WEASA related topics. Please note that WEASA 2018 sessions will all be designed with a non-technical audience in mind – you don’t need to be a digital expert in order to sign up!
The organizers cover all reasonable travel expenses and provide board and lodging. All participants (including Polish ones) are expected to stay at the Natolin Campus of the College of Europe for the whole duration of the event.
