Celebrating Europe Day

Europe Day is an annual celebration symbolising the peace and unity of Europe and the Hawke EU Centre for Mobilities, Migrations and Cultural Transformation celebrated the day (May 9) this year with a special lunch and Student Awards Ceremony at City West campus.

Guest speakers included the Director of Alliance Francaise D’Adelaide Jean-Christophe Trentinella, and Honorary Consul to Slovenia in Adelaide Adrian Vatovec.

Associate Director of Research & Programs at the Hawke EU Centre Professor Susan Luckman outlined how the Centre connects UniSA students with Europe.

“Some of the key remits of the EU Centre are to provide opportunities for research students and staff to learn more about the EU through study, research or exchange,” Professor Luckman says.

“We have a number of offerings that allow staff and students to travel and connect with EU counterparts. We also have programs like the Hawke EU Centre internship program that finds each year, a talented undergraduate journalism student to join us in the Centre to gain hands on experience of working in this environment.”
