Session 01D

It’s time for Africa: partnerships between European University Alliances and African institutions

European University Alliances aim to prepare future generations to find solutions to big societal challenges. Issues like climate change, democracy, health and migration are not unique to Europe; collaboration with actors from other regions is vital. This session presents the aims of the CIVIS and ATHENA university alliances and their different approaches to building partnerships with African institutions.
