Rectors Seminar: Networking of university networks: synergy of partnership


The Rectors Seminar: Networking of university networks: synergy of partnership is organised as part of the 210th founding anniversary celebrations of the University of Belgrade, 24-25 May 2018.

The Rectors Seminar will address the added value and novel forms of inter-university cooperation and discuss the reasons for the increasing interest in working in partnerships and forming strategic university alliances, partially prompted by the new "European Universities" initiative.

The Seminar will also look at the specific benefits of cross-border and inter-institutional partnerships, including networking for greener and inclusive Urban Universities and partnerships for academic heritage.
