Digital Forum of the European University Consortium EC2U from May 19 to 21.
In April, the Campus of City-Universities (EC2U) university consortium - an alliance of seven European universities with close ties to their cities - asked citizens about their values. The University of Jena, as part of the network, took the lead in conducting this campaign. During the EC2U digital forum from May 19 to 21, the results will be presented. All interested parties are invited to the event, which will be hosted by the University of Turku (Finland). It will be held in English.
In addition to the University of Jena, the universities in Coimbra (Portugal), Pavia (Italy), Poitiers (France), Salamanca (Spain) and Turku (Finland) as well as the University Alexandru Ioan Cuza in Iasi (Romania) are participating. The EC2U network comprises around 160,000 students, 20,000 employees and a catchment area of around 1.6 million inhabitants of the participating university cities.
Representatives from science, business and city administration will discuss the results of the survey and agree on common values. Experts from the participating universities will also discuss social sustainability and how universities and their cities can work together more closely in the future.
