This past week of October, from Monday 16 to Friday 20, the URJC representatives of EULiST attended the staff week held in Bratislava with the aim of defining the management, strategy and roles of each of the main tasks and work packages of the project European Universities Linking Society and Technology (EULiST). 

From URJC, the director of internationalization Pablo Salvadores, the academic director of innovation Santiago Gómez Ruíz and the EULiST coordinator Juan Manuel García Camús, as well as Regina Costilla as delegate of the students participated in the event, which brought together teams from the universities that are part of the alliance. 45 people gathered in the capital, Slovakia, for the management of the alliance which was recently granted a total financing of 14 million euros.

It is the most transformative process in European higher education in the last 30 years as EULiST is an unprecedented collaboration between European universities covering everything from joint research projects to, in the future, the possibility of starting a degree at one university and finishing it at another. EULiST is a long-term project that represents a major challenge.
