EYPUK Liverpool Summer National Session 2017

28/06/2017 to 02/07/2017
   

Empowering Europeans: encouraging participation, cooperation and innovation

The EYPUK Summer National Session 2017 will take place in Liverpool between 28th June and 2nd July. The event will bring together almost 150 participants from all over Europe. The session will include selection for International Sessions and Forums in 2017 and 2018 by the Jury Team led by Jeroen de Marteau (BE).

Liverpool 2017 will operate under the session theme 'empowering Europeans: encouraging participation, cooperation and innovation', and the leadership team hopes working under this motto will enable them to give delegates a truly holistic experience of EYP: academic, enjoyable, and above all empowering.

The Head Organisers for the session are Morgan Barnden (UK) and Jago Lynch (UK), who will lead the organising team in order to bring the best possible session for delegates whilst moving EYPUK in a new and exciting direction in terms of official selection as well as session efficiency.

The Editor is Klara Scholleova (CZ) who will be leading a small but effective media team and documenting the exciting ideas raised during the session.

The frontline between delegates and officials is always the chairs team which will be led by Laure Steinville (FR), whose experience should stand the session in good stead.

Many thanks go to Liverpool Hope University for providing the session venues and catering.
