The first in a series of multiplier events presenting the outputs of the SHEFCE project were organised in 4 partner countries between September and November 2022.
One set of multiplier events were organised by partners universities (University of Continuing Education Krems, University of Rijeka, University of Girona, Technological University Dublin) to present their developed action plans for community engagement in higher education to local stakeholders and community representatives. The multiplier events also allowed community representatives to provide additional proposals for actions and proposals on how communities could cooperate in its implementation.
Another set of multiplier events were organised (by thr Association of Catalan Public Universities, the Institute for the Development of Education, Mary Immaculate College and the University of Continuing Education Krems) to present their developed policy analyses and policy recommendations local stakeholders of their national or regional higher education systems. The multiplier events allowed for stakeholders to provide additional comments on the recommendations and on how the recommendations could fit in to future national or regional initiatives or reforms in higher education.
Further events will be organised in early 2023 in Belgium by the Free University of Brussels to discuss their action plan and policy recommendations for Flanders.
