“Beyond Borders and Boundaries”

On the 27th and 28th of May, 2024, the 20th anniversary celebrations of the Erasmus Mundus program took place at the Plaza Hotel in Brussels.

The first day highlighted the journey of the Erasmus Mundus program and focused on the successes of the last 20 years. Among the invited guests was Prof. Attila Pausits in his role as academic coordinator of MARIHE (Master in Research and Innovation in Higher Education). Together with other coordinators he discussed how Erasmus Mundus Joint Master programmes contribute to excellence, global visibility and inclusiveness. The Department for Higher Education Research at University for Continuing Education Krems was also represented with a poster and a presentation of the MARIHE program through Dr. Sina Westa in her role as course director.

The second day ventured a look into the future. In various discussion groups, the possible further developments and future scenarios of the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master program were designed and reflected upon.

The event also offered many opportunities for networking between different stakeholders and Master programs and for joint reflection on the past 20 years. A positive view of the coming decades and congratulations for the Erasmus Mundus program were also not neglected.
