European Policy Seminar ACA: Quality in international university partnerships (in joint study programs, research collaborations, multidimensional partnership, monitoring collaboration) – 13 October 2017, Brussels

It's all about partnerships! Sustainable, suitable, strategic - a good partnership brings more than the sum of its part(ner)s. But what makes a good partnership? What makes a good international university partnership? This multifaceted question lies at the core of the next ACA European Policy Seminar (EPS) - Quality in international university partnerships - newlyweds, happily married, in marital counselling or on the verge of divorce.

Hosted in Brussels on 13 October 2017, ACA's 54th EPS will shed light on the current partnership-building trends and developments in European higher education, on goals and outcomes in pursing quality partnerships, on quality evaluation models that work  - or don't, as well as on a number of selected international partnerships with good practices to share. The seminar will be a mix of plenary sessions and parallel group work in four tracks:
Track 1 - enhancing quality in joint study programmes
Track 2 - monitoring & assessing collaborations
Track 3 - research collaborations
Track 4 - multidimensional partnerships

We are happy to announce that the speakers for the parallel tracks have been selected and we look forward to learning more about the collaborations they coordinate worldwide: from Belgium, Germany, Latvia, Norway and the Netherlands to Brazil, Canada, Ghana, Hong Kong, Nigeria and Russia. Warm thanks to all the applicants for their interest - keep an eye on what's next in the ACA events agenda!
