10 years of EWP
Ten years ago, a group of enthusiasts came together in Brussels to discuss possible ways of digitalising (Erasmus) mobility flows in order to reach a more efficient and less labour-intensive administration. This was a first step towards a broad bottom-up initiative, which ultimately resulted in two Erasmus KA3 projects coordinated by Ghent University and the EUF from 2015 to 2019. After a hiatus during which EWP remained available to the Higher Education community but without any significant new developments, its operations have been fully resumed under the aegis of an ambitious new European Commission Framework Contract that started on January 1st 2022.
To this day, the importance of EWP is widely recognised by the whole Higher Education community in general, and by those who are the most involved in internationalisation in particular. Join us to mark this festive occasion, where we will be inviting experts to share their views on how EWP came about (the past), take stock of challenges and accomplishments as of 22/23 (the present) and discuss new inspiring ideas from here until 2030 (the future).
