LogoMore than 250 participants, including 150 Arab and European university leaders, gathered from 10-12 June for the Second Arab-Euro Conference on Higher Education (AECHE) in Amman, Jordan. The conference, on the topic “Strengthening Arab-Euro University Collaboration: The importance of regional mobility”, was hosted by the Princess Sumaya University for Technology (PSUT) and organised jointly by the Association of Arab Universities (AARU), the European University Association (EUA) and the University of Barcelona.
During the concluding session of the conference, reference was made to the declaration of the Third EU–League of Arab States Foreign Affairs Ministerial Meeting in Athens, Greece, which took place at the same time, and which welcomed AECHE “as a forum of co-operation between European and Arab higher education institutions”. Ministers underlined that “better understanding between people will be facilitated through exchanges between their youth, and co-operation between their higher education institutions and research centers”.
