The Center for Urban History hosts and organizes academic events during the summer period
The first such event took place in the summer of 2007 when the Zeit Foundation chose Lviv and the Center to hold its regular "Summer Academy" under the name "History Takes Place". It gave young scholars the opportunity to explore the history of Lviv and its representation in the present-day cityscape. In July 2010 twenty young people from various parts of Ukraine gathered at the Center for four weeks to attend a summer school on Jewish history and culture in East Central Europe. Invited lecturers were from Poland, Russia and Ukraine. The Center plans to continue its program of summer schools throughout the next years hoping to give young scholars the chance to participate in international academic programs outside of the regular academic year.
