Omschrijving Onderwijsorganisatie (tekst)

The U!reka debates serve as a stage for the U!reka partner institutions offering university and university college students, lecturers and interested parties a forum for reflection on relevant social, cultural and scientific issues.

At the start of each semester, the organizing institution presents a kick-off session with detailed information on the course. This will be followed by the opening lecture.

The other partners organize 2 lectures, one in each semester, given by experts from various fields or disciplines. Each lecture is followed by a debate or by questions from the students.

The partner institutions make video recordings of their lectures to share with the other institutions, totaling the series to minimum 8 and maximum 10 lectures.

Omschrijving Doelstellingen

With the U!reka partners we cooperate to enhance the quality of our education and research, the contribution we make to regional and urban entrepreneurship and innovation in a European context.
In recognition of the needs and benefits to further internationalise research and education at all partner institutions, we organize debates at each of our partner institutions.

These debates are initiated by a keynote delivered by renowned international speakers with expertise in contemporary social, cultural and scientific issues. At every partner institution, a digital version of the keynote is shared with the U!reka students and staff for discussion.

By uniting students of our partner countries and making them work together in virtual international teams, we aim to help develop 21st century skills among students and staff and to share solutions on handling inclusion and diversity in a rapidly changing global environment.
