This is a position shared by many stakeholders including the European Commission. Student involvement is a crucial part of the application criteria for funding from the European Commission.
Nevertheless, our findings show that for many alliances it is still complicated to involve students, and it is not easy for students to understand how they can be involved.
Last Friday, during the webinar we hosted:
We helped the students and staff of the alliances to understand the importance of student engagement, find good ways and structures for it and develop the cooperation of students within university alliances.
We also presented ESU’s perspective on how to organize students engagement in European Universities.
