The internationalisation of higher education systems goes far beyond academic mobility, as it entails integrating an intercultural and global dimension in the teaching methods and governance. Internationalisation is not a goal by itself, but a process aimed at enhancing the quality and standards of education and research, and at making a valuable contribution to society at large. 

In an intent to address regional needs and pave the way for a change of scale in the support mechanisms, the UfM launched a study, conducted by the Mediterranean Universities Union (UNIMED), aimed at being an effective tool for policy-makers and other stakeholders. While adopting a comprehensive approach regarding internationalisation, the study presents an overview of the current regional situation in terms of higher education cooperation, mapping key features and patterns specific to the region.  

The publication is aimed at providing stimulus for further joint discussion concerning tangible initiatives and projects, generating operational solutions to the obstacles identified in the analysis of the current situation of higher education in the Mediterranean, and opening up a roadmap for change. 

The Report will be available for download starting on 22 June at https://ufmsecretariat.org/info-center/publications/, and will be presented on the same date in a dedicated event. The event is open to international organisations, government bodies, universities and civil society, will be conducted in English, French, and Arabic, with interpretation available.

Participants are requested to kindly register through an online form, by 20 June 2021.

The connection details to join the session through Zoom will be sent the day before the event, only to registered participants. The event will be live broadcasted at the UfM YouTube Channel.
