There will be a special session for Managers (or their proxies) to discuss two major EU programmes, Horizon 2020 and Erasmus+ on the morning of Friday 18. This session will be led by Dr Marnix Surgeon, Policy Advisor in the Research and Innovation Directorate of the European Union, and will involve not only a briefing (with plenty of opportunity for questions) on these programmes, but also a session on how U21 and its members might collectively engage with the EU higher education internationalisation agenda. 

The  exact itinerary for this event is still being finalised and therefore we are not yet able to offer precise timings for this morning session. However it has been confirmed that lunch will be provided for delegates following the session.

The session on Friday is also open to other interested parties within U21. Please see below for more details on eligibility for this event. 


The sessions from Wednesday 16 October to Thursday 17 October, including all social events, are open to U21 Managers and members of the U21 Executive Committee only.

The session on Friday 18 October, looking at EU internationalisation programmes, is open to others from around the network  – please contact your U21 Manager in advance should you wish to register.
