The 1st Erasmus Mundus Conference at CEU a Big Success!

Many of you could not make it to Budapest last week, however, I would like to let you know that the first Erasmus Mundus Conference on Climate Change and Higher Education has taken place there as planned and I consider it a big success.

Greening the links

It belonged to the previous semester, it’s been totally forgotten during the cozy Christmas break, but we could not escape it – the student conference on the Environmental Law and Policy was meant to happen on one gloomy January Saturday at the Central European University again.

After some struggle with our abstracts and a few sleepless nights, Lauren’s poster picturing a makeshift railway station announced: ‘Greening the Links: International Environment and Development Beyond Today’.

On-line application form re-launched!

CEU on-line application form was de-bugged and works normally now. Thank you for your patience and looking forward to your applications!
