The representatives of University of Public and Individual Security “Apeiron” in Krakow have visited Sibiu, Romania, on 13th–14th June 2019. They participated in the activities organized by “Nicolae Bălcescu” Land Forces Academy within the framework of Erasmus+ International Week 2019.
The stay at the Academy was full of attractions. On the first day, the representatives of WSBPI (University of Public and Individual Security) “Apeiron”, including Rector Assoc. Prof. Dr. hab. Juliusz Piwowarski and Chancellor Barbara Piwowarska, watched a ceremonious military parade performed by the Academy’s cadets.
Then, our team took part in a presentations session: representatives of higher education units, mainly military ones, delivered slide shows on education and projects carried out in their organizations. It was interesting to find out what the activities of cadets look like in countries like e.g. Portugal, Moldova or Georgia! WSBPI „Apeiron” team also had a presentation at the session: a short video clip in English about our University was played, and our Rector delivered a short speech.
On the second day of our team’s stay at the International Week in Sibiu, another activity began: Knowledge Based Organization Conference. The representatives of WSBPI „Apeiron” listened to the lectures on such topics as defence of the EU or the development of leadership skills in uniformed services candidates. They were really inspiring! Our Rector also took part in a meeting for the participants of prestigious European Union Military Academies Commandants’ Seminar (EUMACS), another event that took place at the Academy during our stay.
The stay at the Academy in Sibiu was as opportunity to meet new people from various parts of Europe and get fresh ideas on the new opportunities for students, further Erasmus+ projects, or the development of WSBPI “Apeiron” academic journals “Kultura Bezpieczeństwa”, “Security Dimensions” and “Security, Economy and Law”. Erasmus+ International Week in Sibiu is a perfect proof that if you want to discover new places, meet new people and get new experiences, Erasmus+ projects are the right choice to make!
