The 2011 EU Summer School activity, which is jointly organized by Tamkang University and the European Union Center in Taiwan, is currently being held at the TKU Tamsui Campus. It commenced with a large-scale opening ceremony on July 4, which attracted the likes of the TKU Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dr. Gwo-hsin Yu, and the Director General of the European Union Center in Taiwan, Dr. Hungdah Su, both of whom delivered brief speeches. The former (Vice President Yu) commended students on their decision to participate in the event, which he said not only provides students with a firm foundation in EU-related knowledge and enables them to keep abreast of the most current EU issues, but also strengthens their ability to analyze European economic and financial trends. The latter (Director General Su) emphasized the need to develop an international perspective, and added that such a perspective comes from exploring issues to do with the European Union.

This year, a total of 45 participants are taking part in the EU Summer School. They include students from Tamkang University, National Chengchi University, and Soochow University, as well as employees from DHL, Quanta Computer, and various medical clinics. The unique aspect of the EU Summer School is that it features speakers with extensive experience in a range of industries, who pass on their expert knowledge to participants in areas such as trade, finance, currency, investment, and law. The Summer School activity will end on the 6th July.
