University and Society: Challenges and Opportunities

di Redazione FGB [1], 13 Ottobre 2012

International Workshop
Italy, Bergamo, 15 October 2012
University of Bergamo, Sant'Agostino [2], room 5


In recent years, while European universities have been undergoing severe reforms, the economic and social crisis has stressed the importance of Higher Education, specifically in terms of young human capital development, as well as 'territorial' and social impact. Next to the traditional mission of creation and transmission of knowledge, universities are now also societal institutions. Contemporaneously, in many countries in Southern Europe, the investments in the Higher Education sector are dramatically decreasing, raising doubts on the sustainability of the system. In this workshop we aim to investigate these issues in a comparative perspective: keynote speakers, research papers and a round table with the participation of eminent experts from all over Europe will stimulate the discussion.
