Mainstreaming Social Dimension in the European Higher Education Area (EHEA)

Strategies, Tools, Raising Awareness. An international Peer Learning Activity for up to 45 stakeholders  

Wednesday, 22nd of March 2017,  Start 9:30
Johannes Kepler Universität Linz (JKU), Altenbergerstraße 69, 4040 Linz

The Austrian Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy is going to launch the “National Strategy for the Social Dimension in Higher Education” at the beginning of 2017.  How about national strategies on Social Dimension in other EHEA countries? We would like to provide an international platform, and invite to discuss experiences in designing, launching, implementing and adapting strategies. 

This seminar targets members of the European BFUG, ministerial officials dedicated to a national Strategy on Social Dimension, Experts on Access and Social Mobility, and national HE as well as student representatives. Next to our attendees from Austria, we also warmly welcome participants from other countries of the European Higher Education Area who have developed, or are in the process of setting up, a national Strategy on Social Dimension.

This seminar is free of charge, but participants must cover their travel and accommodation cost. With your registration you agree – when required – to fill in and send a short questionnaire to the organizers regarding the implementation level and the contact points in relation to social dimension in your country until March 9th, 2017. The questionnaire will be used to prepare the peer learning activity and will be sent to you until 16th of March 2017.

It will be co-funded by the Austrian Ministry for Science, Research, and Economy, as well as by the Project „Pro.Mo.Austria+ // Promoting Mobility. Fostering EHEA Commitments in Austria“- a KA3 activity of the European Commission. We thank the University of Linz for their friendly support.

The whole event will be held in English. Please note that places are limited, we kindly request you to send your registration until 9th of March 2017 at the latest.
