Erasmus+ Webinar on “European Student Card”

Tuesday, November 17, 2020

In the framework of the Erasmus+ Higher Education Reform Experts (HERE) activities, a webinar on “European Student Card” is going to be organised on Tuesday, 17 November 2020 via an online platform.

This event is organised by the EU Erasmus+ programme, as part of a series of events that contribute to higher education reform at national level.

The webinar aims to bring together policy makers and experts from higher education to openly discuss and assess the “European Student Card” (ESC) as a tool to promote transparency and to facilitate recognition and mobility. The meeting will also explore the opportunities of developing a digital infrastructure inspired by the ESC system which can form a structuring vector to enhance transparency, to promote evidence-informed decision making and to move towards digital-aided management of the learning.

Dr. Jean-Paul Roumegas, the coordinator of the ESC project and the Counsellor for international relations and partnerships at CNOUS France, will participate as a key speaker and will moderate the debates on the impact of students’ cards on the sector.
