The conference that summarises the participation of the University of Warsaw and other Polish universities in European alliances under the EU Erasmus+ and Horizon 2020 programmes is held on 10th October. Registration for the event is open until 20th September.
In June 2019, the University of Warsaw received the Erasmus+ funding in the European Commission’s first pilot competition “European Universities”. The funds were granted to 17 consortia, which comprised five Polish universities.
“Over three years of the 4EU+ Alliance project a number of actions have been taken to increase mobility, including the so-called virtual mobility, create joint learning pathways and develop soft skills in students, academic teachers and administrative staff of the University of Warsaw,” Prof. Sambor Grucza, the UW Vice-Rector for Cooperation and Human Resources, said.
Cooperation in building a long-term strategy in the field of research and innovation will be further developed by the 4EU+ Alliance under the project: Transforming ReseArch & INnovation agendas and support in 4EU+ in the Horizon 2020 programme. Educational cooperation between 4EU+ partner universities will be continued in the following years within the project: One Comprehensive European Research University (1CORE), which is co-funded by the European Union Erasmus+ programme. Joint activities will be implemented by seven partner universities of the 4EU+: the University of Warsaw, Heidelberg University, Charles University in Prague, the University of Copenhagen, the University of Milan, Sorbonne University, and the University of Geneva as a new member of the alliance.
The conference at the UW creates an opportunity to present and discuss educational and research activities. The meeting also allows for an in-depth look into other joint initiatives aimed at strengthening the cooperation between the 4EU+ partners and exchanging good practice among Polish members of the European Universities.
The event will be attended by delegates from other alliances of the European Universities, representatives of the scientific community in Poland, including the Ministry of Education and Science, the Foundation for the Development of the Education System, acting as the National Agency of the Erasmus+ Programme and the European Solidarity Corps, and the National Agency for Academic Exchange (NAWA).
The conference is held on 10th October, from 10:00 to 15:00, in the auditorium of the former University Library building (Old BUW), the Krakowskie Przedmieście campus.
The meetings are conducted in Polish. Non-Polish-speaking participants are offered simultaneous translation.
