This year due to the global pandemic and measures to limit the spread of COVID-19, both VVTF and the summer school are in a different situation, challenged to think about how to respond to the constraints imposed, while seeing those as an opportunity for the new form, unprecedented tasks, and intellectual provocations. The application is extended until July 20 – just a few places left.
