The Annual Central European Conference, organized by the UofL Czech & Slovak Societies along with LSE Hungarian and KCL Polish societies and with the support of LSE Annual Fund, aims to bring together Czech, Slovak, Polish, and Hungarian students and professionals in London, as well as any students interested in the region, and provide a platform for discussion about key topics, challenges and opportunities that will transform Central Europe in the near future.

Participants will have an opportunity to hear from and network with academics, public figures from the region and professionals from many fields with the view of uncovering how these challenges can be tackled and opportunities seized.

The 2022 Conference will feature two panel discussions, three workshops, and four roundtables on topics ranging from economics, sustainability, international relations and research & development, as well as keynote and closing speeches. Come and join us for a day full of inspiring people, stimulating discussions and use the unique opportunity to meet like-minded students and professionals interested in the region and future of Central Europe!

Our Vision

Part of our growth experience has been to continually add new features to our project. In the last years we have specifically placed emphasis on content creation and tangible outcomes. These include blog posts, podcasts and social media coverage. This year, we seek to expand further by writing academic white papers on topics discussed at the conference and providing a livestream of the event.

Our long-term vision is to transform the conference into a mobile project which would allow us to expand the intellectual renown of the Central European countries abroad, making the forum representative of the region as closely as possible.

Our History

With the first Central European Conference being held in 2017 we have experienced immense growth in both the number of attendees, team members and public speakers over the course of five years. With the initial 200+ attendees we are awaiting now over double the participants in the upcoming 2022 conference venue.

Our focus with each consecutive year is to reach more people interested in debating and sharing their ideas and invite a variety of different speakers that can influence and share their personal stories. Throughout the years we have had the honour to have influential speakers such as Iveta Radičová, Martin M. Šimečka, Pavel Fischer, Michael Žantovský, Timothy Garton-Ash and many more.
