EURASHE Restart: Workshop on Professional Higher Education contributing to Recovery and Resilience in Europe

20th October 2021, 16:00 – 18:00. Online 

As many countries start to look forward to a post-pandemic world, EURASHE and its members are committed to helping Europe build back better. Like other associations we are restarting our engines and want to face the challenges together with our partners in Brussels, across Europe and beyond. This workshop marks the arrival of a new leadership team at EURASHE and our President will present the association’s strategic objectives, while our partners will provide feedback and suggestions for future collaboration. One such objective is support policy makers in their efforts to rebuild Europe while facing the opportunities and challenges arising from the digital and green transitions. A panel of policy makers and experts will help to show how professional higher education can play its part in recovery and resilience, supporting the next generation of young people in a changing world.
