TEFCE webinar hosted by GUNi

July 1, 2020

The Covid-19 pandemic has been another proof of how important it is to for higher education institutions (HEIs) to cooperate with their wider communities in mutually beneficial ways (both at local and global levels), and has also made more evident than ever the value of such collaborations.  

In the last years,there has been a renewed emphasis on community engagement in higher education, but in many cases higher education institutions are still lacking a common framework that can support them in institutionalising their cooperation and inform policy-makers on the value of their engagement.

The TEFCE project (Towards a European Framework for Community Engagement in Higher Education) is an Erasmus + KA3 project whose objective is to develop much needed innovative and feasible policy tools at the university and European level for supporting, monitoring and assessing the community engagement of universities. In this webinar we will explore the toolbox developed by the project and learn from a first-person experience in piloting the toolbox at the University of Rijeka (Croatia).

Check the whole programme and registration details HERE.  

The webinar is offered to GUNI members and non-members alike. Registration is open and free of charge. Limited places available. REGISTER NOW.

The webinar will be held on (9th of July 2020 from 3 to 4 pm (CET) in English and will be recorded and available for future visualization.
