European Strategy for Universities and proposal to Member States on how to promote transnational collaboration

According to the European Commission, today, European society needs more than ever the contribution of universities. Europe is facing major challenges such as climate change, digital transformation and an aging population, while being affected by the biggest global health crisis in a century and its economic consequences. Universities, and the entire higher education sector, are at the heart of education, research and innovation, and have an essential role in shaping sustainable and resilient economies and making the European Union more ecological, inclusive and digital.

The two new initiatives adopted this year will support universities in this effort.
