Information Session: European Universities
18 Dec 2018 10:30 - 14:00, Thon Hotel EU

Background

Following the recent launch of the European Universities Initiative under the 2019 Erasmus+ call, the Directorate General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture and the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency are hosting an information session in Brussels for organisations interested in the initiative.

Registrations for this event are now closed due to high demand.  A livestream of the session will be accessible by clicking the link above. 

Real insight into the future of universities

Higher education institutions across Europe have begun imagining what the universities of the future will look like. To better shape your ideas and offer some insights, the information session will be the perfect occasion to get first-hand information on the call and to get answers to all the questions you ever wanted to ask.

The event will be opened by Commissioner for Education, Youth, Culture and Sport Tibor Navracsics. His speech will be followed by interventions by officials from the European Commission and the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency. Both the long-term vision of the initiative and more practical elements of applying for the pilot call will be covered. Lunch will be served after the end of the open question and answer forum.

Find out more about the European Universities Initiative or the European Education Area more broadly.
