European Collaborative Programmes presents: A comprehensive approach to education and research funding and policies

Synergies between funding tools for education and research, creative use of the Erasmus+ actions, and the developments within the European University initiative are all topics of high interest for the international education community. This session aims to inspire the audience and demonstrate with concrete case studies, how to make a coherent and effective use of the different EU, national, and regional frameworks – both from the policy and funding perspective. The session will merge diverse perspectives with participants' experiences, fostering round table discussions in two subsequent sessions following the panel debate.
