Arqus Week

From 3rd to 7th May 2021, Vilnius University (VU) hosts the Arqus Academy Week 2021, a week full of interesting discussions, lectures, workshops and other events organised by the Arqus European University Alliance.

This first edition, with the motto of “shaping the university of the future”, aims to engage the communities of the seven universities in discussing a renewed vision for higher education.

We invite faculty, administrative staff from all levels and students across the Arqus Alliance to join the virtual Arqus Academy Week 2021 to:

  • Exchange of thoughts and ideas on variety of Arqus Alliance activities aimed at reach the Alliance’s goals.
  • Benchmark their universities achievements against the European higher education development agenda.
  • Get insight into how Arqus activities answer EU agenda and foster change at their own institution.
  • Find areas of the own interests in cooperating within the Arqus Alliance.
