May 21, 2024, a public lecture titled “Europe: Our European Compass” took place.

The event was opened by Ms. Irina Cerneauscaite, Director of DIB, who informed the participants about Europe Days at ULIM and the upcoming events at the EU Information Center, ULIM.

Dr. Valentina Ciumacenco, Associate Professor and Vice-Rector for International Relations, delivered a welcoming message emphasizing the essential role of education in societal development. She quoted the memorable words of Nelson Mandela: “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

The main guest, Mr. Daniel Funeriu, EU High Adviser in the field of education and research, shared his formative experiences and lessons learned through a series of images and personal stories. His presentation was not only a recount of personal successes but also a comparison between his own development and the progress of the Republic of Moldova within the European Union. This parallel provided a unique perspective on how perseverance and dedication can bring about significant changes both individually and nationally.

The event concluded with a Q&A session, where participants had the opportunity to interact directly with Mr. Funeriu. The questions ranged from personal aspects of his career to insights on the future of education and European integration.

We thank everyone for their participation and interest in this event. We look forward to welcoming you to our future activities!
