A new year has begun and since 1 January, our Brussels office is part of the secretariat of the network UnILiON during 2020. UnILiON stands for Universities Informal Liaison Offices Network and is a network that brings together the universities that have an own representation in Brussels. It is therefore an important source of information and intelligence about future policies and programmes, as well as a platform giving insight into how other European universities organise their European work. The secretariat consists of seven individuals from the same number of offices, and is the body that coordinates the work in the network.
In addition, since the start of the year, Lärosäten Syd is also chair of UnILiON’s Horizon Europe working group, which is a channel for exchanging information about the upcoming framework programme.
