Professors Hana Horak, Pavel Biriukov and Viacheslav Tuliakov introduced the public to several academic deliverables prepared within the Project: the Glossary of Legal Terminology, Textbook: Law of the European Union and Didactical Manuals.

Once again the Conference was great opportunity for enhancing academic mobility and dissemination of knowledge in order to reach the goals of the project. Special thanks go to our Russian and Ukrainian partners for their great efforts in preparing project outputs which will serve as solid basis for further, enhanced studies in EU law at co-beneficiaries.
