ATHENATHON PLUS: the new and improved version

The moment you have all been waiting for is finally here! The ATHENATHON is coming back for its fourth edition.

This year, we are introducing ATHENATHON+: a new and improved version with conferences focusing on our usual ATHENATHON values: European identity, Green Mobility and Well-being and health. As a student or staff of ATHENA, you will have the opportunity to attend a multitude of events at your respective universities but also some others from our partners.

European University alliances – opportunities for the region of North Rhine-Westphalia

To celebrate Europe Day 2024, ATHENA and the University of Siegen, together with eight other universities from the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia, invite you to the event “European University alliances – Opportunities for North RhineWestphalia”. European University alliances are innovative partnerships between different universities and higher education institutions in Europe that pursue a common mission. The aim of the alliances is to strengthen international cooperation in the areas of teaching, research and innovation, to promote the international mobility of students and employees and to transform the European Higher Education Area through a new and future-proof form of collaboration. This also offers innovative and unprecedented opportunities for North Rhine-Westphalia, which will be presented and discussed at the event. The event is organised under the patronage of the Ministry of Culture and Science of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia and in the framework of the DAAD’s “Week of European Universities 2024”.

On European Day: A Meaningful Gift to the International VILNIUS TECH Community

In celebration of European Day, a symbol of peace and solidarity in Europe, let’s get to know each other better. We are excited to extend a warm invitation to the international VILNIUS TECH community for an enlightening lecture, join us to gain deeper insights into Lithuania’s journey as we host political scientist Linas Kojala for an exclusive lecture in English titled “Unlock Lithuania: How It Became a Strong and Independent Country?“. We look forward to welcoming you on 9th May, at 10:00 CET, in the VILNIUS TECH (SRA-I) A03 auditorium.

European Day commemorates the spirit of unity across the continent. Linas Kojala, a distinguished political scientist, commentator, lecturer, and director of the Eastern European Studies Centre (RESC), will guide us through a profound exploration of Lithuania’s past and present. He will help us better understand Lithuania’s past and present, our values and struggles for freedom, the challenges Lithuania had to overcome when becoming a member of NATO as well as the European Union (EU) — marking the 20th anniversary of our membership—and Lithuania’s principled stance on the conflict in Ukraine instigated by the aggressor country.

The lecture “Unlock Lithuania: How It Became a Strong and Independent Country?” will be conducted in English, so we especially invite the entire international VILNIUS TECH community – students and teachers from abroad.
