ACA's Statement on the roll-out of the European Universities Initiative
ACA published a statement on the European Universities Initiative, supporting its full roll-out and delivering some key recommendations for a successful continuation, to foster excellent and inclusive higher education collaboration and transformation across the European Education Area and the European Research Area.
In the statement, we encourage a continuation of the initiative in line with the original objectives; a balanced and fair approach, with adequate room for participation for diverse types of HEIs and strategic partnerships, and for both already selected and new alliances; open and fair competition between already selected and newcomer alliances; transparent and timely communication, to secure trust and commitment of HEIs to the initiative; flexibility for existing alliances in time, resources and conditions to deliver on their ambitious goals, in line with their bottom-up nature, while avoiding policy and goal overload.
ACA strongly supports the European Universities Initiative and offers key recommendations for a successful continuation to foster excellent and inclusive higher education collaboration and transformation across the European Education Area and the European Research Area.
