EUA presented a webinar series based on selected sessions of the 2020 EUA Annual Conference. The webinars covered the original theme of the 2020 EUA Annual Conference: Universities building a better Europe. They were of interest to institutional leaders, including rectors, vice-rectors and heads of departments, as well as higher education researchers and analysts, and representatives of other bodies involved in educational policy. The Conference started on 17 April, with the Webinar “Strength in numbers can university alliances change the game?” This webinar explored the benefits and challenges associated with various cooperative models in place. Next webinar named “Promoting universities societal engagement” was held on 22 April. This webinar included presentations of two approaches to addressing higher education’s societal responsibility. On the last day of the Conference, 24 April, a webinar named “Making a difference through partnerships” was held. This webinar presented initiatives by higher education actors who take a collaborative approach to address and fulfilling universities’ role in society. We can conclude that „Universities play a crucial role in creating knowledge and fostering democratic and sustainable societies. Their impact on wellbeing and the development of a thriving, competitive Europe stems from educating future leaders, professionals, researchers and citizens. It equally comes from curiosity-driven research aimed at identifying and meeting the broad challenges we all face and outreach to local and global industry and governments to foster much-needed innovation. Yet demonstrating and communicating universities’ impact at the societal level is a challenge in itself“. Universities, especially during this hard time need strong leadership, a focused strategic approach, as well as coordinated efforts across Europe and beyond.
