Edition 197 - September 2017

Quality in international university partnerships – coming soon!

More than twenty speakers have confirmed their participation to the 54th ACA’s event in the series of European Policy Seminar (EPS), to be held in Brussels on 13 October 2017. The seminar, entitled Quality in international university partnerships - newlyweds, happily married, in marital counselling or on the verge of divorce, will address issues and challenges concerning quality in international university collaboration, namely one of the most significant topics in present-time international higher education debates.

The seminar will provide a forum for critical discussions devoted to some of the main trends in international partnership development within the European higher education landscape, including related challenges as well as opportunities for innovative approaches. The programme canvasses an array of plenary presentations and a panel discussion, where key experts will chart the most important developments observed over the past decade. Furthermore, the programme includes four parallel sessions, where HEIs representatives will present innovative and inspiring case-studies in four areas:

Track 1 – enhancing quality in joint study programmes

Track 2 – monitoring & assessing collaborations

Track 3 – research collaborations

Track 4 – multidimensional partnerships

The cases for the parallel tracks have been submitted over the summer period via an open call for proposals. Proposals were received from multiple European countries and types of institutions and feature collaborations with HEIs around the globe.
