Call for expressions of interest: EUA focus group on universities and public engagement

05 October 2017

The European University Association (EUA) is organising a focus group on universities and public engagement and invites university practitioners from across Europe who have experience with the topic to reply to the call for expressions of interest. The event will be hosted by the Open University of Catalonia in Barcelona, Spain on Friday 19 January 2018.

Open University of CataloniaOpenness is important for universities and they have both the capacity and the responsibility to play a more active part in society in their own right. Research and higher education have an increasingly direct impact on society, and it is the role of universities to interact and engage more directly in a dialogue with citizens and stakeholders more generally.

How can Europe’s universities engage strategically in promoting and sustaining a positive dialogue beyond their institutions? What are the good practices, where are the risks and pitfalls? The Focus Group on Universities and Public Engagement offers an opportunity for sharing practices and experiences among university leadership from all over Europe.

Find out more information on the selection criteria and the event and fill in the application form.

The deadline for applications is Friday, 17 November 2017 at noon (CET).
