Mannheim Local Learner Chapter

Europe's diversity is characterized by various countries, cultures, languages, and mentalities. Being part of the European Union, we need to face up to intercultural challenges and build long-term networks in order to ensure that international exchange works. For, it is only together that we can address issues relevant to society, such as climate change, digitalization, or the energy crisis.

The ENGAGE.EU Local Learner Chapters offer a multifaceted semester program aiming to provide interested students with knowledge and information about the current challenges Europe is facing. Participants will gain an insight into the different countries of our ENGAGE.EU partner universities as well as into their culture and languages. They will also have the opportunity to exchange views on their special interests as well as topics related to Europe with like-minded students from different disciplines and semesters.


  • Structure

    The semester program is composed of different on-site events such as lectures, workshops, and country evenings. In short presentations, representatives from industry as well as students and teachers will address specific challenges that Europe is currently facing. In addition, the countries and cultures of the ENGAGE.EU partner universities will be presented in an interactive format. All events will be held in English.

    At the end of the evening events, participants will have the opportunity to network and share what they have learned at a brown bag dinner while enjoying food that they have brought. The semester program is open to students of the University of Mannheim of all semesters (bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral students) and programs.
