Congress is the biggest project organised, jointly, by the Foundation and SGH Warsaw School of Economics Students’ Union.

It took place on April 26, 2019 in Warsaw, Poland. The event consisted of two segments – academic and business. Each segment included two panels.

The academic segment is dedicated to students and focuses on the comparison of education systems in Europe and Asia, as well as the promotion of the leading Asian universities. Representatives of Asian universities will also be dedicated time to provide first-hand information about the registration processes and the professional opportunities available for graduates.

The business segment is dedicated to young entrepreneurs planning to expand into Asian markets. The panels will be attended by corporate representatives from both continents, with rich experience and knowledge on the subject.
