Take part of the 4th edition
Inspired by 4 years of exploring Europe from local initiatives to EU thematics, we are organizing the 4th VULCA Seminar.
4 main objectives
About the seminar
Our journey made us enthusiastic to gather people with various backgrounds and different professions, to create a community of people working towards solutions for collective problems.
Around 100 participants will come from all over Europe believing you don’t have to be a professional stakeholder to make a contribution to the future of the European Union. And we think citizens’ hobbyist ideas can and are already making changes.
Let’s meet in Zadar to better understand how makers are changing the face of the European Union.
Main topics of 4th Vulca seminar
What is the place of MHackers and
fab labs in the politics and future strategies of the EU ?
How MHackers mobility is supporting
the development of Sustainable Development Goals ?

How to arrive in Zadar?
Zadar Airport Zemunik (ZAD) has good connections with most cities in Europe and Croatia. It is situated 20 minutes from the city centre and there are several ways to reach it:
- Public transportation – buses
- By car
- Rent a car
More information can be found at http://www.zadar-airport.hr/
There are few roads that lead to Zadar, but we recommend highway A1 (route Zagreb-Split). You should take exit Zadar istok (Zadar east) or Zadar zapad (Zadar west).
If you are coming from Italy, the shortest possible route is through Ancona by ferry to Zadar. The journey lasts about 8 hours (departure is normally at 22:00 and arrival at 06:00) and the advantage of such a trip is that it is much more pleasant and you are under less stress. More information can be found at http://www.jadrolinija.hr/.
Zadar is the centre of north Dalmatia and very well connected with other Croatian and bigger European towns. More information about buses
Official language is English.

Frequently asked questions
Because of corona virus pandemic, together with our Croatian partners and health authorities in Croatia
We are in the process of defining the new date for the seminar. Initially, it was planned for April, but due to Covid19 pandemic, the new date will be scheduled soon, probably for September or October 2020.
Note: We will send an automatic email to all people who have already booked the ticket.
The ticket for the seminar is free, but it is mandatory to take the ticket (this helps us estimate how many volunteers we may need or any logistics-related issue 🙂
Ticket link: → http://bit.ly/Ticket_VulcaSeminar – alos, we are limited to 250 places!
There is also a possibility to take the « donation ticket » if one is willing to pay for their ticket. This money will be used to assist the arrival o volunteers or attendees who have a smaller budget.
After we define the new date for the seminar, we will share on our social media a form « Become a volunteer » that you can fill in.
Volunteers that already applied will be notified about the new date in case they are still available for the seminar.
Vulca is an association that exists thanks to volunteers. Therefore, we don’t have our stable source of funding.
However, feel free to contact us. There are people that give donation tickets which could partially or in full cover your travel expenses. We also have the option of free accommodation in the sports centre in Zadar.
Feel free to send us an email to get more info. Email: email@example.com
Detailed program of the Vulca seminar is available on the Sched platform: https://vulcaseminar2020.sched.com/

Since the seminar is postponed, we will review with all speakers their availability for the new date, and update in reasonable time.
Also, for workshops that have a limited number of participants, it is important to pre-register.
Fun part of Sched is – you can make your own profile there so other attendees can see in advance info about you – what you decide to share.
