Welcome to a new CIVIS week, please find below our latest news.

Best wishes,

University of Glasgow accepted as associate partner

The EACEA and the EC approved the inclusion of the University of Glasgow, as an associate partner! With the arrival of this ninth member to the alliance, CIVIS opens a new page in its short history. This makes our adventure even more exciting and should enable our Scottish friends to continue to participate in the construction of Europe.

In line with our discussion during the last steering committee, the forthcoming Board of Rectors will have to debate about the actions and timetable that will make this enlargement as successful as possible.

Save the date - European Education Summit

The Third European Education Summit on “Digital Education Transformation” organised by the European Commission
will take place in a digital format on 10 December 2020 from 09.45 to 17.05 CET. The European Education Summit will provide an opportunity for national education ministers, Members of the European Parliament and representatives of the education and training ecosystem to discuss digital education transformation and to provide feedback on the Commission’s vision to create a European Education Area by 2025 and to implement the Digital Education Action Plan.

A session will be specifically dedicated to EUUniv: “European Universities: Paving the way for higher education transformation post COVID-19”, from 14.35 to 15.20.
Prior registration is not required. You can find all information and programme on the event page (see below).

CIVIS Second Call for activities Hub Climate, Environment, Energy

The second call for projects of the Climate, Environment and Energy Hub has been launched.

The projects already submitted in the first call of July 2020 can also apply while respecting the eligibility criteria of involvement of at least 3 CIVIS universities.

The deadline for the 2nd call is February 1st 2021 and you will find here the documents of the call for projects.
The evaluation and coordination of the initiatives will be carried out by the Hub 1 Council members of each university.

Save the date - A CIVIS e-Journey into Nano

Academics from AMU, UAM and SUR, with a project already laureate of the 1st Hub and STM calls, invite Academics and Researchers from CIVIS member universities to follow, on Tuesday 15th December, the presentation of their master programs and research activities in the field of Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies.
The program will include focused flash-talks on specific topics.
The overarching objective of this journey is to build durable collaborations for a future European master degree. This will be discussed in a dedicated round table gathering the main actors in education, international relations and research centers associated to the participating universities in the field.
