EEC - Leaders of Tomorrow

The EEC - Leaders of Tomorrow project takes place as part of the European Economic Congress (EEC) and is aimed at increasing the participation of young people in public life and promoting active citizenship. The main goal of the project is to create a space that would integrate the future leaders of economic and public life into the European debate; and to open the Congress more to young people — entrepreneurial, active, bold and independently thinking individuals.
As part of the EEC - Leaders of Tomorrow Project, the University of Economics in Katowice hosts Congress speakers from around the world who participate in meetings with students and employees and give lectures on broadly understood economic issues. As part of the EEC Leaders of Tomorrow, students can also participate in European Economic Congress sessions, as well as volunteer, which allows them to interact with representatives of the world of business, science, government and local government at home and abroad. This is a regular project that runs every year.

The university has the status of an Institutional Partner of the European Economic Congress (EEC) and a co-organizer of the EEC - Leaders of Tomorrow.
