On 24 January, ACA held the 2013 edition of its popular What’s new in Brussels? seminar. Despite admitting the record number of 150 participants, the event was oversubscribed. We apologise to those who did not manage to get a place anymore.
The seminar presented participants with the state of play in the legislative process over the Erasmus for all Programme and its counterpart in the field of research, Horizon 2020, amongst others. The news came right from the lion’s mouth, i.e. key staff of the European Commission, such as Director Jordi Curell. Some participants deplored that agreement on some key issues – not least of which the budget – had still not been reached between the member state governments and the European Parliament.
One highlight of the seminar was the presentation of the work of NGO Empower European Universities, by former Dutch education minister and World-Bank Vice-President Jo Ritzen. ACA held the seminar in a new venue, where all 2013 seminars are going to take place.
The second ACA European Policy Seminar is going to take place soon, on 14 March. It is going to be devoted to recent developments in Indian higher education and cooperation between India and Europe. One of the many distinguished speakers will be Phil Baty, the editor at large of Times Higher Education, who is also in charge of the global league table of Times Higher Education. Registrations were opened two weeks ago.
Coming soon is also the ACA annual conference, which will take place in The Hague (the Netherlands) from 9 to 11 June. Registrations will open soon.
