Dear all,
We have got the pleasure to announce the 2020 edition of summer schools organised by the geographers of Faculty of Science, Humanities and Education of Technical University of Liberec. We prepared two courses, focusing on the Central European countries and Cross-Border Co-Operation between them. Both courses will be held in August 2020 and will be hugely overlapping. Except for the new knowledge you will make new friends, visit three countries and learns something about them. We will be very happy to welcome you in Liberec, splendid place just an hour from Prague!

On the behalf of the summer schools team Hynek Böhm
