The main topic of the discussion was a new, interdisciplinary study program at our University - Sustainability Management, aimed at educating specialists in sustainable development and implemented jointly by several units of the University.

Meetings with Representatives of UMCS faculties allowed us to identify common research areas and opportunities for cooperation. A nice moment of the stay of foreign guests in our city was a visit to the portal connecting Vilnius and Lublin. This time, the Vice-Rector of VILNIUS TECH, Dr. Adas Meškėnas, greeted us from the capital of Lithuania.

Cooperation with VILNIUS TECH is possible based on our joint participation in the Consortium ATHENA European Universities.
