Innovative charm-eu master’s programme featured in nature

CHARM-EU joint Master’s Global Challenges for Sustainability is featured in the latest issue of Nature, the world’s leading multidisciplinary science journal. The correspondence emphasizes the importance of transdisciplinary training for tackling future challenges.

“Rapid and equitable global change means that students in a wide range of disciplines must learn to synergize with researchers, international partners and extra-academic stakeholders” – CHARM-EU colleagues and authors of the article, including Katalin Felvinczi, professor at ELTE’s Faculty of Education and Psychology and coordinator of the Life and Health track of the CHARM-EU Master’s programme emphasize.

The correspondence titled “Linked research hubs train students to tackle societal challenges” focuses on how CHARM-EU’s joint degree programme Global Challenges for Sustainability prepares students for transdisciplinary collaboration and creative problem-solving. Students participating in the programme learn within an international network of research hubs comprising local scientists, experts and stakeholders. With the help and input of these research hubs, students can frame and research complex issues such as how to deal with future pandemics and gain skills crucial to deal with the challenges of the future.

European Higher Education Organization

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.
