Once a year, htw saar Business school and the German foundation ASKO-EuropaStiftung organize a joint seminar withan American partneruniversity, Westminster College (Salt Lake City/Utah) - the European SummerAcademy.

American and German students work together on political and economic subjects about the European Union and transatlantic relations, and thereby get an understanding for the needs of the other party. Guest lecturers from renowned institutions all over Germany give their presentations.

The German hosts will have the chance to show their American friends and colleagues around in the city of Saarbrücken. Besides a visit and a guest lecture at the htw saar campus in Saarbrücken, field trip to European institutions, such as the European Central Bank in Frankfurt, the European Court of Justice in Luxemburg, take place as well as visits to Strasbourg and Trier. To round up the program, various leisure events are organized for the students to get to know each other.

After a week of working and living together, students make their goodbye at the farewell barbecue on the last evening.
