The European Dual Studies University


Representatives from Mondragon Unibertsitatea have been at the II Forum of European University Alliances, in Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain – September 15, 2023

430 universities from 35 countries have taken part in the II Forum of European University Alliances, an event that was held at the Fabra i Coats: Creation Factory in Barcelona on 14 and 15 September. The main objective of the event was to provide a space for dialogue and coexistence of opinions to address the most important issues affecting European alliances today. 

The Forum aimed to establish long-term strategic alliances between European universities and to promote European identity and values, as well as excellence and transformation. Thus, since the birth of the European University Initiative, it has proposed partnerships that seek innovation and aspire to go beyond conventional boundaries. The programme included thematic sessions and plenary sessions which were reflected on topics as diverse as “the social dimension of European universities: obstacle or driver of integration” or the “Financial sustainability and coherence of the European University Initiative with the policies of the EU and the member states”, among many others.

The Forum has been attended by many experts in the field of Higher Education and university policies, such as several representatives of EU4Dual alliance from Mondragon Unibertsitatea: Vicente Acha (Rector), Jon Altuna (Academic Vice-Rector), and Jon Aurrekoetxea (Project Manager).
