EURASHE is delighted to welcome its first Associate Members following changes to its statutes that were approved earlier this year. This brand-new category is designed for partners and stakeholders who are not higher education institutions but who wish to collaborate with EURASHE and its members.
ALL DIGITAL (previously known as Telecentre Europe) is a European association based in Brussels, Belgium, that represents 100 members from 27 countries across Europe. Since 2011, All Digital intends to improve society by supporting digital skills in the education sector. Its strategic plan is based in five focus areas: Basic digital skills, Employability and entrepreneurship, Coding, Digital media literacy and STEAM skills for society. These priorities set the basis of its two Communities of Practice, several European-funded projects and events. In a bilateral agreement, EURASHE is now also a member of ALL DIGITAL, representing its members and supporting them to face challenges on digitalisation and its transition.
SynHERA is a Belgian network of the 19 Hautes Ecoles of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation and their 10 associated Research Centres. This network of experts in technological and social innovation brings together more than 800 researchers working to serve economic and social players. This network helps companies, particularly SMEs, to define their needs and participates in the development of their applied research and innovation activities by drawing on the network of skills and expertise.
By becoming Associate Members of EURASHE, both entities enter the community to engage with networking opportunities and resources, gaining partners across Europe and abroad. EURASHE continues to strengthen its network to promote the voice of applied higher education in Europe.
