Collaborating for Impact

Launch event of Lärosäten Syd Brussels Office

Universities working together for cross border regional impact

As of September 2018, Lärosäten Syd, the network of Universities in South Sweden, has an office in Brussels. The representation in the European capital is an effort to strengthen the connections of the regional research and innovation system in south Sweden with European partners.

To mark this development, the vice chancellors of the six universities would like to invite you to the launch of our Brussels office on 7 December.

This will be an occasion to meet our universities for a discussion on the role of regional university networks:

  • How can we, as university networks, create impact both for universities as well as their surrounding regional ecosystems?
  • How can we enhance the focus on global challenges within universities?
  • How can we improve the preparedness for engagement in Horizon Europe?
  • How can regional networks facilitate the development of European collaborative initiatives in the area of research and education?

We are delighted to welcome you to join us for this policy seminar and a networking lunch to discover more about the research strengths of our universities.

Time: Friday 7 December, 9:30-14:00
9:30-10:00 Registration, tea, coffee and biscuits
10:00-12:30 Policy seminar
12:30-14:00 Green networking buffet lunch

Venue: Arts56 | Avenue des Arts 56, 1000 Brussels
(Our office is located in Nordic House, but the launch will be held around the corner)
