On 18 May 2017 CITY College, the International Faculty of the University of Sheffield successfully held for the 16th Students Spring Symposium at its main campus in Thessaloniki aiming at enhancing student research and showcasing remarkable research projects. Entitled ‘Create to Share, Share to Inspire’ the Symposium was part of the ‘2nd Young Researchers Skills Development Week’, an event that celebrated academic research and featured a series of research-related workshops and activities. As always, the Symposium was organised for students by students being one of the major events and traditions of the International Faculty.

With more than 160 registrations, 14 high quality student presentations, a workshop on “hate speech” and a plenary talk by the Mayor of Naousa, Mr Nikos Koutsogiannis, the Students Spring Symposium this year was characterised by its high quality, quality that can now easily match that of a professional conference.  Furthermore, the Symposium this year innovated with a new addition, the open competition. In the competition two teams composed of students from different disciplines presented a problem related to the migration crisis, and suggested a solution. The completion was judged by two invited guests from NGOs. The two judges were extremely impressed by the work of the teams, the quality and depth of the presentations, and especially the suggested solutions.
