Improving European competencies
Between April and July of 2014, five lectures were given at the TU Kaiserslautern [University of Kaiserslautern] under the name Visionen für Europa [Visions for Europe], including one by the head of the ZDF television studio in Brussels, Udo van Kampen. The goal of the lecture series was for the attendees to gain a better understanding of the Brussels network and procedures at the European level, and, in doing so, create a basis for useful contacts at European institutions.
With the same goal, an information and lobby trip to Brussels with members of the FRW organisation took place from 4-5 November 2014. In addition to visiting the European parliament and the representative from Rhineland-Palatinate, the trip also included a meeting with Member of European Parliament Jutta Steinruch. ZRW's General manager, Dr. Hans-Günther Clev, used the opportunity to present the strategic direction of the ZRW and its project plans to representatives of several European regions.
