Ice-breaking meetings in Poland
After two years of waiting we decided to be optimistic and looking into the future. With David Kalmár, the new Deputy Director we paid a short visit to Poland. It was worth traveling. We met Beata Surmacz, Director of the Institute of Central Europe and her deputies Tomasz Stepniewski and Lukasz Lewkowitz in Lublin to discuss their participation in next year’s summer seminar in Balatonfüred and also join the search projects on European Security. We met Professor Bogdan Góralczyk of the University of Warsaw and dr. hab. Kamil Zajaczkowksi, new Director of the Centre of East Europe. They see med to be happy to re-start the academic cooperation with us and we can only hope that personal meetings can go on now. We plan our traditional Summer Seminar in Balatonfüred in August next year. Exact date will be decided in January after the annual board meeting.
