Europe is experiencing a new trend of clustering, integration and merging of existing higher education institutions (HEIs) and even the creation of new universities. This session explores this new landscape and gives concrete examples of how the trend of institutional resource pooling within Europe has led to a new set of opportunities and challenges for HEIs that wish to strengthen their international outreach or academic ranking position to improve their international footprint.
