eucen, in collaboration with AAACE and UPCEA, has organized a seminar:

How to survive in critical times? University Lifelong Learning 4.0

Join us in a dynamic trans-Atlantic seminar where Europe and the US come closer to address responses to unexpected critical situations. We want to imagine together ways to manage and mitigate the consequences of Covid-19 and potential future crises.
