FEPS is the abbreviation for the Foundation for European Studies and is based in Wroclaw, Poland. FEPS was founded in order to enhance and facilitate high quality interdisciplinary research in the Social Sciences and the Humanities, to promote new methodological approaches and to link academics, ambitious students and practitioners. This way, FEPS also contributes to the adult education development - by promoting best practices and connecting ambitious learners and researchers. The primary objective of FEPS is to promote and support the active civic participation of young people and adults. We have an experience in organizing international educational activities such as workshops, training courses and conferences. In those projects the European context always plays a major role, because of the priorities of the foundation. The projects organized by FEPS (training, conferences, oral history researches, media and political science survey), were addressed not only to European citizens, but also adult learners from other European countries (Belarus), the United States of America, or Africa.
Although our organization is relatively young (establ. 2008), we are a team of experienced educators and project managers, in the field of political and European science, history, cultural studies and media. We are academics, Phd. candidates at the University of Wroclaw, young activists and culture animators. We are members of Polish Oral History Association (POHA) and Anna Lindh Foundation.
