The Europaeum announces, with regret, the departure of its current Director, Dr Marcin Walecki, who left the organisation at the end of February 2022. The Europaeum will now be overseen by the Executive Chair (Dr Hartmut Mayer) assisted by a newly created part-time post of Director of Core Activities (as well as by the already existing Director of the Scholars’ Programme). The new post will be filled as soon as possible via an open competition. In the meanwhile, Dr Dimitar Bechev has been appointed to this position on an acting basis.
The Europaeum continues to bring together the most talented, energetic and socially committed students within the Europaeum network so that they may add to their professional skills, and, above all, learn to work together towards the goal of shaping the future of Europe for the better. We are confident that the new structure lays strong foundations for this ambitious mission.
