Conference: European University Alliances, Assets for the European Research and Higher Education Areas

In the framework of the French Presidency of the Council of Europe, the University of Strasbourg and EPICUR Alliance are organising a conference entitled ‘European University Alliances, assets for the European Research and Higher Education areas’ on 12th April 2022, from 3.00 p.m. to 7 p.m.  The event will take place at the Faculté de Droit (Law Faculty) and is by invitation only. 

The European University Alliances are at the crossroads of higher education, research excellence and European cooperation. Laureats of the call for projects in 2019, EU-CONEXUS and EPICUR will be used as examples to demonstrate the contribution of European university alliances to the convergence of the European Research Area and the European Higher Education Area and the strengthening of collaboration and mobility between different areas of the Union. The event will also address the positive impact of European university alliances at the local level.

The conference is organised by the University of Strasbourg in partnership with the French Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, the European Science Foundation and EuroScience. The conference will bring together European officials and experts from the Bologna Follow-up Group (BFUG), the Council Working Party on Research (GRC/RWG) and the European Research and Innovation Area Committee (CEER/ERAC) of the European Council.

The European Science Foundation is looking forward to this important event, exploring the potential of European university alliances for the European research and higher education areas.
