A very Happy New Year from everyone at EUA!

EUA wishes all its newsletter readers a very happy and successful 2014. We have many exciting events and project-related activities planned for the next months.


These include EUA’s Annual Conference that will take place at the Université libre de Bruxelles in Belgium from 3 to 4 April and will focus on the “Changing Landscapes in learning and teaching”. EUA members are also encouraged to attend the EUA General Assembly prior to the main conference. (Please note registration will open soon.) A full list of events covering a wide range of topics, including those organised in the framework of projects, can be viewed on the EUA events webpage.


Meanwhile, the project section of our website also contains information about all of our ongoing projects and relevant opportunities for members to participate in. For example, members can still apply to take part in two focus groups being organised as part of the “Designing Strategies for efficient funding of higher education in Europe” project.


In terms of its policy work in 2014, EUA will continue to work on different levels to ensure that the voice of universities is heard in European-level policy debates on key issues that impact both at national level on the work of national university associations and for the association’s individual member universities. The EUA work programme for 2014/15, with detailed information on all key areas of all EUA’s different policy and project-related activities, will be published shortly on the EUA website once it has been discussed and approved by EUA Council at its next meeting later this month.
