On 6 and 7 June 2015, UTE member representatives met in Rome to attend the General Assembly of the UTE.
Held twice a year, UTE General Assemblies bring together all the UTE members’ representatives in order to discuss and vote on major decisions regarding the future of the network. UTE members decide on the allocation of the budget, discuss the content of the UTE programme, suggest activities, projects, collaborators, vote on the admission of new members, and elect their new legal representatives.
The General Assembly took place in the context of a special artistic programme dealing with the issue of conflicts, including showcases and a study day on WWI in Italy and Europe.
