EU Modernization Agenda 2020

The central theme during 2016 edition of the Global Perspectives Program asked participants to contemplate issues and challenges pertinent to our common future in the global higher education arena with respect to EU Modernization Agenda 2020. Rooted in research, but with an eye toward the future, the 2016 GPP cohort dedicated specific attention to three key areas:

  1. Relevance of learning and teaching
  2. HEIs as strong regional innovators
  3. Mutually reinforcing education and research activities

This publication presents written contributions from each member of the 2016 GPP cohort. Participants were free to report on some aspect of the year’s central theme or select another topic pertinent to global higher education. Together these contributions ask important questions and seek in-depth answers to some of higher education’s more pressing inquiries.
