This part of symposium is intended as a forum for PhD students and master students who aim to pursue PhD studies in DRM&FSE to have an opportunity to present the results of their scientific research.
The Symposium provides an opportunity to students of PhD studies to get acquainted with the research methods and the system of education of different countries and universities. Furthermore, the official program includes presentations of textbooks and selected lectures by esteemed scientists from P7-P11 as well as 'round tables' on current and popular topics in the DRM&FSE field. Partners P13 and P14 will be included in dissemination and survey of target groups.
2nd part of Symposium will be in line with the methodology of European Youth Parliament (EYP-workshops). All participants of the Symposium are appointed a working group – Committee. Each committee has its facilitator (P7-P11) and journalist (provided by P1-P6) which organize and follow the work of each Committee. A Committee is also given its own topic, which is in direct relation to the K-FORCE project theme. The workshop consists of three major parts, first of which is Teambuilding, first done with all the participants and then further in Committees. Teambuilding represents a series of exercises aimed at establishing a positive working environment and good communication inside the Committees. The second part is Committee Work, during which the participants are tasked with creating a resolution to the topic at hand. This is done by analysing, discussing and formulating the problems and solutions to the topic, whilst consulting experts in the field. At the end of Committee Work, these problems and solutions are drafted, in the form of resolutions submitted in the European Parliament, to form a Resolution Booklet of the Conference. All of the resolutions from the Booklet are then individually debated on, attacked, defended and finally voted on by all the participants during the General Assembly, the third and final part of the working day. The aim of the General Assembly is to replicate the working procedures of the European Parliament.
Additionally, the event combines an unrivalled educational conference and presentation of newly establish Study Programs in the field of DRM&FSE. There is opportunity for students and teaching staff to speak with experts; find solutions to technical challenges and stay current with technological advances in DRM&FSE field. Experts and professionals will expose their papers on thematic what knowledge is necessary for building resilient society. Partners will present their programs and elaborate of possibilities and importance of education in the field of the DRM&FSE and continual learning (LLL). All Partners will participate with their presentations and lectures and consultations. Survey will be conducted during the event to ensure project quality.

Additional persons (non-project partner members or teaching staff) are welcome to attend, at a price which will be advised. Presentation of project results and conclusions and presentations of selected papers of end users of the project (master student papers and PhD student Papers), round table: discussion and definition of recommendations for further steps in improvements of education in DRM&FSE field.
The invited lectures presentations and selected workshops will be also taped and available on-line at Web site and Flexible learning platform.
