Spotlight on: Networks and alliances

Collaboration is a signature element of international education in Europe, with the European Universities Initiative injecting significant new momentum. This Spotlight session will explore how various European University Alliances are working collaboratively on everything from scaling up virtual exchange to streamlining administrative and academic activities and implementing a global strategy. Partnerships involving the UK and beyond the Erasmus+ framework are also a key focal point.
