The Euregio Studentseminar aims to bring together a select group of students to exchange ideas revolving around current social topics at play in the European Union, in particular in it’s border regions, the Euregio’s.
This year, eight different schools are taking part in the Euregio Studentseminar. These eight schools select a total of 120 students to participate in the seminar. These students join each other during a two day event and participate in a carefully constructed inspiring program. The seminar takes place on Thursday the 15th and Friday the 16th of February 2018, and the location of the seminar is spread across multiple venues.
Theme and workshops
The theme for the Studentseminar 2018 is 'Climate, watermanagement and technology'. This theme will be discussed from three different perspectives, supported by Waterschap Vechtstromen, KNMI and faculties from the University of Twente. During the seminar, several lectures will be given by politicians, scientists and enthusiastic teachers. Interesting workshops will take place, as well as challenging assignments and debates. The three theme's that will return in the workshops and debates are as follows:
- Water Resources & Geo-information Technology
By the faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation (ITC)
- International Water Policy & Governance
By the faculty of Behavioural Management Sciences (BMS)
- Membrane Technology & Water Purification
By the faculty of Science and Technology (TNW)
The multidisciplinary approach in the programme of the Studentseminar reflects the approach of the Twente Education Model (TOM) that is applied in the bachelor programmes of the University of Twente. Through project-based education, students at the UT learn to look at societal problems from different perspectives and how to sove the problems from different disciplines.
The project Euregio Studentseminar is made possible by the efforts of the INTERREG V A-Programma Deutschland-Nederland and co-funded by the European Union (EU). Also contributed by Province of Overijssel and Lions Clubs Nord-West Munsterland, Hamaland, Haaksbergen.
