At the Faculty of Political Sciences and International Relations at Matej Bel University in Banská Bystrica today (26 April 2016), with State Secretary of the Slovak Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs Ivan Korčok in attendance, the official opening ceremony of GLOBSEC Academy Centre was held. It was founded by GLOBSEC, the non-governmental organization organizing the international security conference bearing the same name in Bratislava. GLOBSEC Academy Centre will link the well-established GLOBSEC brand and expertise with the academic field of Matej Bel University and will become a research center for young experts and leaders in international relations. 


“Developing the expertise of young generation of people who can influence public opinion in the future and also professionally profile themselves in the state administration is a welcome step in the current dynamic international environment.  I hope the Center is able to meet its vision of an effective link between the academic environment and the non-governmental sector," stated Korčok in his address.


Having successfully established the GLOBSEC brand in the international community, the newly founded center represents an opportunity for young people to develop their research potential and professional profile in key areas of foreign, European and security policymaking.
