Event UNICA GENERAL ASSEMBLY 2013 & Rectors Seminar "UNICA and the Southern Mediterranean: Sharing, Learning, Cooperating"

Higher education has extraordinary capacity to advance changeprogress, and renewal in societies. In the principle of solidarity and partnership we have an obligation to support the capacity building of education, research, and community involvement in regions outside the European Higher Education Area.

The developments of the Arab Spring are of central interest to many of our members much as Europe is facing its own great economic challenges. The three sessions of the Rectors Seminar, brought under the title UNICA and the Southern Mediterranean: Sharing, Learning, Cooperating, will gather the representatives of the South Mediterranean institutions that are close partners of UNICA universities, will provide a platform for exploring the collaboration opportunities between UNICA and Southern Mediterranean universities and will seek to foster Southern Mediterranean regional partnerships based on common goals.   

The programme of the Rectors Seminar is prepared in cooperation with the Union for the Mediterranean.
