20 jaar European University Association

The European University Association (EUA) is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. The organisation, which brings together more than 800 higher education organisations from 48 countries, plays a central role in European discussions and policy-making in the fields of higher education, research and innovation. As such, the EUA also represents the voice of Dutch universities, on topics such as Recognition and Valuation, Open Access/Open Science and strategic autonomy. Recently, the EUA also published its vision for the next ten years: 'Universities without Walls'. This vision makes clear that universities play a crucial role in solving the major societal challenges of our time.

To congratulate the EUA, VSNU President Pieter Duisenberg recorded this vlog:
