16 applicants, members of six different faculties of St. Petersburg State University and three other universities, were selected for participation. Two lecturers from St. Petersburg as well as a disseminator, who works with visiting students provided the comparative basis for the group of university teachers. Apart from the Russian university teachers, there were also teachers from Germany and Italy, who attended the seminar. The motivation for offering this seminar was to give the participants a better understanding of European integration, democracy and training in teaching methodology and didactics in an international environment. The participants also visited the European Parliament and the Council of Europe. The excursions contributed to the better understanding of the EU institutional system.
