EU Forum For Business-University Dialogue

The European Commission has called upon Member States to strengthen cooperation between universities and business in Europe and proposed the existing University-Business Forum as a European platform for dialogue and partnership aimed at modernising higher education systems in EU Member States.

The University-Business Forum is comprised of education institutions, companies, business associations and public authorities who have identified the main challenges as: updating curricula to foster employability and entrepreneurship; increasing mobility both across borders and between industry and academia; encouraging lifelong learning and renewing university governance structures.

Proposed future topics for the Forum include the role of university-business cooperation for regional development and the involvement of small and medium enterprises.
