Who are we?

The EUROPE DIRECT operating in Szeged is the member of the Hungarian Europe Direct network, which is part of the Europe-wide family of information centres. The centres ensure the proximity of Europe for locals and they involve them in the debate on the future of Europe. The network is managed by the European Commission.

Please contact us in case you have questions about the policies, programs or priorities of the EU, or if you would like to attend events concerning the future of the European Union.

We visit schools where we hold presentations, organise debates about the EU and we also distribute official publications.

All of our services are offered free of charge for the citizens concerned.

Please note that we are not entitled to provide legal advice and interpreting EU law is also outside our scope of responsibilities.

EUROPE DIRECT Szeged is the only office in the Hungarian network, the Host Organisation of which is a higher educational organisation. It is natural therefore, that within our targeted audience we pay special attention to the information demands of students and that our publications and events represent the high professional quality expected at the Faculty of Law of the University of Szeged. Our team has always been open to projects beyond the strictly educational framework of the Universitas. With the operation of EUROPE DIRECT Szeged (now as part of the International and Regional Studies Institute), we manage yet another connecting point between the university, its environment and the European Union.
