CfA: Forum for Young Professionals “Europe Lab",

21-24 July in Zagreb and Vukovar/Croatia

The EU-Russia Civil Society Forum invites young 
professionals aged between 25 and 35 from the EU, 
Russia, and other European states to apply for 
the 2nd edition of the "Europe Lab" Forum, a 
successor format of the "Pilorama Lab" Project 
held at the Memorial Centre of the History of 
Political Repressions "Perm 36" (Russia).

Forum for Young Professionals "Europe Lab" is a 
unique communication and exchange platform for 
change makers from all over Europe working in 
public administration, business, NGOs, 
universities, think tanks, and other fields of 
professional engagement.

Main goals of "Europe Lab" are to enable 
cross-sector cooperation and promote exchange of 
ideas, develop partner networks, and encourage 
common projects of young professionals in Europe 
in several areas.

The working language of the Forum is English.

"Europe Lab" will take place on 21-24 July 2016 
in Croatia - Zagreb and Vukovar - with an 
excursion to the local Memorial Centre of the 
Homeland War, which keeps memory of all the 
victims of the Homeland War in former Yugoslavia 
(1991-1995) and of the Battle of Vukovar (1991) - 
as a place of mourning and warning for future 
generations not to repeat fatal faults and 
atrocities of the past.

The programme of "Europe Lab" 2016 includes four workshops:

Wars After 1989 - Is There a Chance for Reconciliation?
*    Brave New Media - A Jilted Generation
*    Refugees (Un)Welcome - Caught in a Trafficking Jam
*    Social Entrepreneurship - Rooted in Community
Each workshop will be curated by a coordinator.

The best common projects, whose ideas were 
elaborated during the workshops, will be granted. 
The winners will receive advice from prominent 
experts in their area as well as coordinators and 
speakers. The results will be presented at the 
7th General Assembly of the EU-Russia Civil 
Society Forum on 1-3 February 2017 in Helsinki, 

Finally, "Europe Lab" graduates are invited to 
join the permanent young professionals' platform 
at the EU-Russia Civil Society Forum, to lead and 
play a role in a number of future initiatives.

Costs for workshops, accommodation, and meals are 
covered by organisers. Travel costs are borne by 
participants themselves.

Applications can be submitted until 1 May under 

We're looking forward to receiving your application!
