Jury Members Summer School 2021, Lisbon

The 27 young participants were selected by a distinguished jury composed of business executives, EU policymakers, professors, senior journalists, and equality defenders from all 27 Member States.
The members of the jury were looking for well-rounded candidates. They reviewed academic achievements, but also candidates’ interests and work outside the classroom, and their desire to learn more about the role of technology in the world.
