Openness is important for universities and they have both the capacity and the responsibility to play a more active part in society in their own right. Research and higher education have an increasingly direct impact on society, and it is the role of universities to interact and engage more directly in a dialogue with citizens and stakeholders more generally.
How can Europe’s universities engage strategically in promoting and sustaining a positive dialogue beyond their institutions? What are the good practices, where are the risks and pitfalls? The Focus Group on Universities and Public Engagement offers an opportunity for sharing practices and experiences among university leadership from all over Europe.
