6th 4EU+ Steering Committee meeting takes place in Copenhagen

On 21 February in Copenhagen, the 6th Steering Committee meeting of the alliance brought together the representatives of academic leadership as well as administrative coordinators from each of the six 4EU+ institutions.

With the deadline for the Erasmus+ “European Universities” call within sight, the 4EU+ application was naturally the main subject on the agenda. The meeting was also an opportunity to present the 4EU+ website and to approve the alliance’s communication plan for the upcoming months.

The previous 4EU+ Steering Committee meetings were held at Sorbonne University (25-26.05.2018 and 17.12.2018), Heidelberg University (09.11.2018 and 17.11.2018) and University of Milan (22.01.2019).

The European Commission launched a pilot call for ‘European Universities’ in October 2018 under the current Erasmus+ programme. The action supports higher education institutions in going beyond existing cooperation models and progressively increase the quality, international competitiveness and attractiveness of European higher education. 4EU+ will be among the alliances applying for the pilot programme before the 28 February deadline.
