Save the date: ACA’s “What’s new in Brussels?” – 28-29 January 2021, online 

ACA’s flagship European Policy Seminar “What’s new in Brussels? Recent developments in European policies and programmes, will take place online on: 

  • 28 January 2021 (13:30 – 17:00 CET) and on  
  • 29 January 2021 (09:00 – 13:00 CET).  

 The year 2021 will mark a new stage in European higher education. Not only will it kick start the implementation of the key strategic orientations underpinning the renewed European Education Area and the European Research Area (with the financial backing of the EU Multiannual Financial Framework 2021-2027), it will also continue the tremendous efforts of the sector to pursue co-creation and innovation in the challenging context of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many institutions will have to recalibrate their strategies to the new realities in order to mainstream and upscale such efforts, in the field of internationalisation, among many others, and to seek support at national and European levels for their inclusion, sustainability and digitalisation agendas.  

 The main goal of “What’s New in Brussels? Recent developments in European policies and programmes is to facilitate such institutional processes and to offer a birds-eye view of the key innovations and opportunities in the new generation of EU higher education & research programmes and policies. Special emphasis will be placed on Erasmus+ actions and their synergies with Horizon Europe and other, including national-level, funding schemes 

 The programme will also feature concrete approaches higher education institutions and national agencies can employ to put the new European directions into practice. The event will also provide an opportunity to engage in an open dialogue with leading experts and policy makers at multiple levels. 

Registrations will open in a few days’ time. Stay tuned!
