Five Catalan Universities launch their eParticipation portals today, in addition to the nine initial portals that were launched in September 2011, in an ongoing effort to provide university members and the local, national and EU stakeholders in the higher education system a chance to be a part of a decision – making process. These five end-user universities and the website address of their eParticipation portals are:
Autonomous University of Barcelona - www.e-myuniversity.eu/uab
Polytechnic University of Catalonia - www.e-myuniversity.eu/upc
University of Barcelona - www.e-myuniversity.eu/ub
University of Girona - www.e-myuniversity.eu/udg
University of Lleida - www.e-myuniversity.eu/udl
The portals of these five Catalan Universities are a part of the MyUniversity project and will run in pilot phase until the end of MyUniversity project. They all use the same processes and e-Participation tools that create the unique experience of interacting and participating in the decision-making processes in higher education.
Launched on October 1st, 2010, MyUniversity is a two and a half year project that will demonstrate how the universities could use an array of specific e-Participation tools for involving university members and stakeholders in transparent higher education decision-making processes at local, national and EU level. MyUniversity is currently supported by the European Commission (ICT Policy Support Programme) and involves 13 partners from 7 EU Member States: Belgium, Bulgaria, Greece, Lithuania, Slovakia, Spain and Sweden.
