Interaction of Research and Education in Universities’ Cross-Border Cooperation – Case Arctic Five

Combining the European Research Area (ERA) and European Education Area (EEA) plays a central role in the future landscape of European research and education policies. The synergies between higher education and research build strongly on the dual role of universities.

During this online event, we will discuss the ongoing policy process on the synergies of the European Research Area and the European Education Area, and what we can learn from the long-standing university cooperation of Arctic Five, where the interaction of research and education drives the collaboration.
