TI Summer School

Over the course of the seven-days students will have classroom lectures, role playing scenarios, group projects and peer-to-peer interactions.

The goal is to give students the necessary skills to empower them in the fight against corruption in their countries; they also receive 6 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) credits from Mykolas Romeris University in Vilnius.
