European University Association (EUA)
The European University Association (EUA) represents more than 850 universities and national rectors’ conferences in 49 European countries. EUA plays a crucial role in the Bologna Process and in influencing EU policies on higher education, research and innovation. Through continuous interaction with a range of other European and international organisations, EUA ensures that the independent voice of European universities is heard.
European University Foundation (EUF)
The EUF is a network of leading state universities united by the idea of academic excellence. It is based in Brussels. For more than a decade, member universities have been working directly with the European Commission and its institutions on the most crucial issues related to internationalisation, mobility, student mental health, etc. The EUF produces many projects per year on leading topics related to the Erasmus+ priorities and key themes of the period.
Association for European Life Science Universities (ICA)
ICA is a network of more than 50 universities from the EU and neighbouring countries (European Higher Education Area, EHEA). The life science universities relate to the circular bioeconomy (agriculture, forestry, food value chain & biobased economy), the sustainable use of natural resources, biodiversity, the protection of the environment and rural development.
European Network of International Relations Officers (IRO ICA)
IROICA is the European network of international relations officers at Higher Education Institutions (HEI) in agricultural and related sciences.IROICA is a network of individual members, the membership is not on a institutional basis. This allows for a very wide pool of expertise which is shared at Annual Conferences and Workshops. It also facilitates networking during the events organized each year. The Conference took place at MENDELU in 2022.
The HEROES consortium consists of eight universities: Thomas More University of Applied Sciences, Deggendorf Institute of Technology, Fontys University of Applied Sciences, Seinajoki University of Applied Sciences, Polytechnic Institute of Beja, University College of Northern Denmark, Mendel University in Brno and Halmstad University. As part of a European Commission call, they are jointly preparing a project called “European Universities”. The aim of the consortium is to cooperate intensively in the field of different types of teaching (e-learning, blended learning, Collaborative Online International Learning – COIL, …) and in the field of exchange of teachers and students (including students with special needs).
