On the 14th and 15th of November 2022, Rectors, Directors and President of the nine universities of the alliance, along with representatives of EELISA students, faculty, staff and external advisors are gathering in Paris to celebrate the EELISA Governing Board Meeting hosted by École des Ponts ParisTech and PSL Université Paris.
During this two-day event, attendees are going to be provided with key background information on EELISA’s work status of implementation and emphasize concrete results from Phase 1.
They are also having the opportunity of hearing the presentation of Vanessa Debiais-Sainton, Head of the Higher Education Unit of DG EAC (European Commission). She is going to share the recently launched 2023 Erasmus+ European Universities Call for proposals. As recognition for its work, EELISA has recently received feedback from the European Commission on its Progress Report that highlighted it is very positively advancing towards its objectives.
Along with this Governing Board meeting, another important gathering is taking place: the second in-presence EELISA Student Council meeting. Student representatives from all the EELISA partner universities are meeting to discuss topics such as the functional organization of the council, potential formulas and actions for the massive involvement of students in EELISA and the role of the Council for Phase 2 of the Alliance.
The Governing Board and EELISA Student Council will concur with the opening of the exhibition “My European University” on both PSL and ENPC campuses. An exhibition that will display portraits and testimonies of faculty, staff, students and collaborators already involved in EELISA. This showcase is part of the “EELISA Days” – a full-week program of over twenty on-site, hybrid, and online activities hosted by each EELISA university in the context of the Elisa Leonida Zamfirescu’s birthday.
