The city and the university together - Building sustainable, mutually beneficial partnerships.

The grand societal challenges (e.g. sustainability, diversity, equality) demand that universities redefine themselves, develop new identities and explore new ways to connect with society, and vice-versa get society involved in universities. The relationship between academia and society is changing significantly as a new research and innovation landscape seems to take form based on networks, knowledge sharing, and open research.

The Erasmus project SEU (Socially Engaged Universities) tries to shed light on the compelling relationship between academia and diverse communities. More particularly it focusses on different models of community or civic university partnerships as well as an in-depth exploration of socially engaged innovations.

The international conference “The city and university together – building sustainable, mutually beneficial partnerships” will present some of the best cases that are carefully selected by participating SEU countries (United Kingdom, Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany and Italy) and aims to engage participants in the debate of how we create socially engaged universities.

Please choose two different breakout session from the options that are mentioned underneath. Also indicate whether or not you want to participate at the Ghent city exploration.
