On 4 April, the EURASHE delegation led by President Armando Pires visited the central campus of its member, the University Politehnica of Bucharest, Romania, to discuss the preparations for the EURASHE 32nd Annual Conference ‘Skills For Europe’. EURASHE was welcomed by Vice-Rectors Valentin Năvrăpescu and Horia Necula and the International Relations team, who showed the university facilities and the latest works of its researchers.

With 205 years of history, the University Politehnica of Bucharest is the oldest technological university in Romania; since it was founded in 1818, its mission has been thought over as a blend of education, research and innovation. UPB has 15 different engineering faculties distributed over three campuses, two state-of-the-art research centres with more than 70 laboratories, almost 29.000 students enrolled in BSc, MSc, and PhD studies: 95 undergraduate degree programs, 184 master programs and 14 doctoral schools, and 44 programs in English, German and French.

UPB will host the 32nd EURASHE Annual Conference on 8 and 9 June, gathering more than 150 participants, experts and policymakers to get inspired and draft a shared path for skills and the future of higher education.
