The European Documentation Centre in Almeria is organising the conference “The European Union and its global challenges” on 20 October.
The conference, which will be held in person in the Salón de Grados of the Government Building and Paraninfo of the University of Almeria and will be simultaneously broadcast in streaming through our YouTube channel, will begin at 9.00 am and will close at 14.00 pm.
This conference brings together for the first time at the University of Almeria a large group of people from Almeria with an extensive professional career as European civil servants, whose experience will undoubtedly be enriching for the next graduates of our university.
