The differences within the European Union have recently become more evident than ever before, in most cases in the form of conflicts. How can this diversity be turned into a strength? To discuss this issue, the TUM School of Management is hosting the second "European Union Week" with guests from Hungary and Greece. The opening address will be held on May 14 by Nadja Hirsch, MEP.

The events are open to the public with free admission. The talks and discussions will be held partly in German, partly in English as indicated by their respective titles.
