Attendance success at the 3rd Arab-Euro Conference on Higher Education

The 3rd Arab-Euro Conference on Higher Education took place at the University of Barcelona from 25 to May 27  This major event brought together around 200 participants from the Association of Arab Universities (AArU), the European University Association (EUA) with their respective members and higher education institutions from different countries.  


MIMI partners also attended this conference, which aimed to open a sustainable process of dialogue, mutual understanding, to exchange knowledge and to increase cooperation between Arab and European Universities. This event gave a unique opportunity for the MIMI project to disseminate its outcome by holding a poster session and making available brochures on the project’s objectives and results. 


During the AECHE’s closing ceremony, the 4th edition of the conferences was announced . AECHE 4 will take place in Morocco at Mohammed V University of Rabat, in April 2017. AECHE 4 will focus on the different aspects of EURO-ARAB cooperation in strategic research areas.
