A student from the University of Novi Sad, Vladimir Bujak, won the first place in EUGLOH student video competition “Building Bridges”, organized in anticipation of the EUGLOH Annual Summit 2023, Lund, Sweden. The three finalists – from the University of Lund, the University of Szeged and the University of Novi Sad – presented their entries during the closing ceremony of the 3rd EUGLOH Annual Summit in Lund on 14 June 2023. Within the framework of a 3-minute video, each told an inspiring story of how they are building bridges between university and society.
"What is the most important skill you have learned so far at university and how have you used it to make a positive impact?" This was the question that all EUGLOH students were invited to answer in their videos. A jury consisting of EUGLOH members from the field of communication as well as a student representative selected the winning videos during the finals.
For Vladimir Bujak from the University of Novi Sad, who is a first-year student of English Language and Literature at the Faculty of Philosophy, this skill was time management, and he has used it to design an all-in-one note-taking app able to rapidly synthesize information and present it in an easy-to-study format. His motivation for this project was to spend less time writing note cards to study for university exams and more time with his family. “This video came to be out of a deep need of mine to show the people in my life how much their love, support and affection mean to me”, Vladimir elaborated during the award ceremony at the EUGLOH Annual Summit in Lund. His devotion to finding a way to spend more time with his loved ones won him first place in the video competition.
The competition theme arose from the main Annual Summit title “Building Bridges between Education and Research”, which gathered more than 300 representatives from all nine EUGLOH partner universities as well as all four associated partner universities. The Summit was hosted by the University of Lund, Sweden, 12-14 June 2023.
