EUROPEAN UNIVERSITIES INITIATIVE 
BUILDING THE UNIVERSITIES OF THE FUTURE 

- KICK-OFF event, 7th November 2019, Brussels

To mark the kick-off of the first 17 European Universities alliances, the European Commission is organising an event on the European Universities Initiative on Thursday 7th November 2019.

The event will present the transformative role of the European Universities initiative and provide an open discussion on the concept, the perception and the implementation of European Universities as a model for the future of Higher Education.

Professor Astrid Söderbergh Widding, President of Stockholm University, will represent the CIVIS alliance, as one of the panelists, and share our vision on the university of the Future.

This event will also be the occasion for the 17 Alliances to come together, to share their projects to policy makers, students and academics, and explore the opportunities created by this initiative.

An information session on the second call for proposals for the European Universities Initiative will also be part of this exciting programme.

The event can be followed on the European Commission website as well as on Erasmus+ Facebook and Twitter channels!
