JM Centre of Excellence team member Rafal Szymananowski took part in Young Scholars’ Debut in March 2020. The objective of the Debut was to enable participants to publicly present an academic paper on the topic related to the main theme of the CoE. During the event students’ presentations were discussed and evaluated in terms of form and content. The event was addressed to students who do not typically deal with EU issues. They were provided with guidance on self-presentation, useful for their professional careers whether at the university or elsewhere, in institutions and organizations dealing with European matters and financed from EU resources.
