The UB, headquarters of a new European hub to modernize and internationalize the universities
The UB will detect the priorities and needs to look after the modernization of the European Higher Education Space (EEES) and will organize training activities for the staff of national and international universities. EUF, with offices in Brussels and Luxembourg, will take part in the design of this new training offering and will assign UE project funds that have been received. The aim is to contribute to create a large community of professionals from higher education committed to the internationalization activities and who can lead new experiences in this field. Between five and ten training activities are expected to be organized over the first two years. Another line of activities in this hub is to contribute to create new institutional projects between universities and conduct an evaluation task of the existing ones.
Most of the activities of the hub will take place in Barcelona, although some can be carried out in other cities. The first activity to be organized by the hub will take place on January 29 and 30 at the Historical Building of the UB and will consist of a workshop on the creation of Erasmus+ projects. There will be theory and practical sessions, individual and group sessions, in which EUF experts will give their advice to write new Erasmus+ projects.
