EUA is building strong universities for Europe through a programme of activities aimed at supporting their development. In addition to our policy and project work, members (and other higher education stakeholders) can take part in a carefully designed programme of events that have been developed to respond to the needs of different sectors of the higher education community.
 
Member events: EUA and EUA-CDE
For EUA members and/or members of the EUA Council for Doctoral Education: these include an Annual Conference, and more targeted thematic workshops, focussing on specific issues affecting the university community.  EUA members can also take part in the annual European Quality Assurance Forum – the landmark event for all higher education stakeholders working in quality. 
 
Project-related events
As part of its project work EUA also organises regular events (conferences, workshops etc.) that are designed specifically for universities to collect and share examples of good practice.

Events with partners
EUA actively organises events with its partners on a wide range of issues relating to the different areas of its policy work. These include a number of events organised outside of Europe with other international organisations that are active in HE policy and cooperation.
 
Brussels networking events
To reinforce its role as the voice of Europe’s universities, EUA organises regular ‘networking events’ and sessions for the Brussels community to highlight different areas of its work and latest trends in the sector.
