In the second week of May, the EDIC University and the Institute for European Studies (UoM) organised several events to commemorate Europe Day. On Tuesday 8 May, the EDIC held its first 'Europe Day' Quiz Night at 'Is-Suq tal-Belt' in Valletta. Over 100 students participated in a lively evening answering questions on the EU, the Eurovision, Champions League and European Cinema. The 'Alfred Sant kellu ragun' team won the first prize of four €100 travel vouchers. Dr Elena Grech (Head of the European Commission's Representation in Malta) joined Dr Mark Harwood (Director of the Institute for European Studies) in launching the event.
The next day, Wednesday 9 May, marked Europe Day and several events were held on campus. The Institute for European Studies and EDIC University participated in the European Food Festival, organised by JEF Malta, while Dr Harwood formed part of the panel discussion on European Identity held on campus. In the afternoon, the European Documentation Centre (within the Institute) hosted JEF's 'European Identity' Workshop while the EDIC sponsored the 'Vino e Vino' event on campus in the evening of Europe Day.
