The main goals of this project are:
- The involvement of doctoral students in academic work.
- Attraction of academic staff from abroad.

The project involves the participation of academic and administrative staff of all three faculties. The project is scheduled for a period of 24 months until October 30, 2020.
Workshops on the organization of the project will be held soon.
