Background

At the end of its lifecycle, EquNet is organising a workshop in Brussels with the aim to aggregate energies from the main European networks and organisations active both in the higher education field and in equity-related activities, to discuss the importance of equity in EU higher education.
The seminar wants to be a genuine dialogue moment between Higher Education and social inclusion stakeholders in Brussels, and aims to:
    Contribute, starting from the results of the EquNet research and of similar exercises, to shaping EU and national policies in the field of Higher Education;
    Foster the exchange of research findings, working practices and ideas among relevant stakeholders and communities, in particular facilitating contact between the academic and the civil society communities;
    Present the EquNet set of HE equity indicators, a set of tools and methods developed to actually “measure” equity in European higher education.
