EUA initiative European Universities

University of Nova Gorica first Slovenian University to join EUA's initiative European Universities for an Open World

The University of Nova Gorica is the first higher education institution in Slovenia to have joined the initiative European Universities for an Open World, launched by the European University Association. The initiative has been established to promote the commitment of higher education institutions and organisations linked to tertiary education in supporting refugee students, academics and university staff. The interactive EUA Refugees Welcome Map features all higher education institutions joining the initiative and is available at: http://refugeeswelcomemap.eua.be/Editor/Visualizer/Index/34 The Map will make the European higher education sector’s initiatives for refugees more visible to society at large and policy makers in particular. It will also serve as a platform for exchange of good practice and for dissemination of information, for instance on collaboration and funding opportunities. It aims to encourage future cooperation and peer learning on how to respond to the refugee crisis by offering the participants an opportunity to participate in direct exchange and cooperation with other individual institutions and organisations.
