RUN-EU will participate in the Forum of Universities for the Future of Europe

21 January 2022

Higher education is a top priority for the French Presidency of the Council of the EU as the European Universities Initiative was launched following the speech on Europe delivered by the French President, Emmanuel Macron, in 2017.

This event follows up an informal meeting of European ministers for higher education, research, and innovation, where the European strategy for universities and the synergies between research and higher education policy were largely discussed.

Registration is done in two steps: first, you need to provide your email address, and then, on the day of the event, you will be asked to validate your profile to access the viewing links.

For more information about the programme and how to register for the event, visit the Forum of Universities for the Future of Europe’s website.
