The defences were held in a mixed format on the ZOOM platform with the obligatory participation of supervisors and reviewers. The associate professor was impressed by the high ideology and quality of the works, maturity and skill in execution, the ability to present and promote scientific and creative works.

On top of that, Marharyta Netreba visited the media hub, the library and the main campus of the university, got acquainted with the current situation on the educational market and the educational systems of Lithuania, discussed the topics of future scientific publications and events that are of interest to Ukrainian and Lithuanian colleagues.
