About Euroweek

About Euroweek

EUROWEEK is just UNIQUE! It is an annual international student conference whose overall purpose is to add value to current studies by exposing students to an international work and research environment in order to enhance their international employment opportunities. Among PRIME Networking members the Euroweek concept during 20 years of development continues to stimulate practical exposure to current development in such fields as Business Administration, Engineering, Information Technology, Tourism, Marketing, Management. In addition to research and participation in the conference students profit from a real ‘hands-on’ feel for numerous important aspects of their fields of study. Students develop valuable skills in data gathering, analysis, problem-solving, and drawing conclusions as well as presenting their projects in an international (primarily European) context.

The Euroweek concept innovatively combines the educational challenge of collaborating online in intercultural, interdisciplinary teams and competing for the academic awards infront of an international audience.  From its first conference in 1995, Euroweek has been annually evaluated to insure continual improvement. What remains the same is the exhilarating opportunity for cultural learning and the pleasure experienced by all participants.
