All activities falling under the Hub theme are welcome. With the Hubs building up a framework for research-driven and challenge-based joint educational activities, our objective is to foster synergies among education and R&I (research and innovation). Proposed activities can, for example, include courses, summer schools, workshops, semesters, project supervision, and research exchanges. The activities could include training & research projects with students as well as workshops/meetings of academic staff to develop future joint activities. At least one joint and interdisciplinary educational program shall be established within the Hub by the end of 2022 (‘joint and interdisciplinary educational programs’ could be CIVIS modules, CIVIS Micro-programs or multilateral M.A. programs, that can be built on existing joint degree programs between CIVIS partners).

Two types of initiatives have been identified:

  1. Activities that are “ready to go” and for which we can offer CIVIS branding, networks, and support as well as student and staff mobilities.
  2. Activities that are at the “planning stage” for which planning is needed for implementation of joint teaching projects within the next academic year. For these activities, we can offer CIVIS networks and support as well as staff mobilities so that members can meet (virtually or physically) to exchange ideas.

European Higher Education Organization is a public organization carrying out academic, educational and information activities on higher education in Europe.

The EHEO general plan stresses that:

  • Higher education systems require adequate funding and, as an investment in economic growth, public spending in higher education should be protected.
  • The challenges faced by higher education require more flexible governance and funding systems, which balance greater autonomy for education institutions with accountability to stakeholders.

Thus, EHEO plans:

  • improve academic and scientific interaction of universities;
  • protect the interests of universities;
  • interact more closely with public authorities of European countries;
  • popularize European higher education in the world;
  • develop academic mobility;
  • seek funding for European universities.
