How much do you know about the Economic Agreement? This is the starting point for “Quizz 41”, a university-level quiz set up by the Basque Government so promote and encourage interest in the Economic Agreement in the university community.
This action has been made possible by the joint efforts of the University of the Basque Country, Mondragon Unibertsitatea and the University of Deusto. It is set up as a cross-sectoral education and promotion action in the organisation of which not only the Treasury & Economics Department but also the Education Department of the Basque Government are involved. It will take place on 4-5 December. Full information is available on the www.quizz41.eus website, where the registration period is open until 29 November.
The preliminary rounds at each university will take place at 3 pm on 4 December. All teams will play at the same time, in face-to-face question and answer sessions at venues prepared specifically by each university. There will be a round of 20 multiple-choice questions with three possible answers, only one of which will be correct. If there is a tie, further rounds of 4 questions each will be held until the tie is broken. The last four teams remaining at each university will be the winners and will go on to play the final.
The final will take place at the Basque Historical Archives at 10 am on 5 December, where the twelve remaining teams will play off with the same format until just one is left. Each member of the winning team will be receive a study grant of up to €2500 for use on graduate or postgraduate studies in the next academic year at any of the three universities taking part.
