Call for paper

The Sopianae Association in cooperation with the Europe Direct Information Office for Baranya County, and the Doctoral Student Association of the University of Pécs is organizing an international event, the 4th Youths in Europe Conference in Pécs.

The aim of the conference is to start a scientific, interdisciplinary conversation among young intellectuals from EU member and candidate countries. While EU member states’ representatives have adequate and precise knowledge on the potentials of the EU, the guests from candidate countries will bring new insights into the discussion. The joint efforts can result in achieving a better, more homogeneous, and more common Union by synthetizing the problems and considering them from different points of view.


  • Law
  • Energy Policy
  • Politics

The professionally prestigious, academic plenary and paper presentations offer a unique opportunity for young Ph.D. students, scholars and researchers to introduce their research projects. The program also includes social activities that bring variety and color to the two days long event.

The conference will be held between November 24-25, 2017, in the Zsolnay Quarter in Pécs.
