As the EU debate ramps up, Universities for Europe will be holding its first national event from 6 to 8pm on Monday 29 February: The EU referendum and its impact on our universities: Views from outside the UK. 

This panel discussion, chaired by Professor Paul Boyle, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Leicester, will bring together voices from Switzerland, the US, Ireland and Egypt to consider the potential impact of a Brexit on prospects for international collaboration, and on the UK’s attractiveness as a partner for research and mobility. This event is free to attend.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Allan Goodman, President and Chief Executive Officer, Institute of International Education (IIE)
  • Professor Ashraf Hatem, Secretary General, Supreme Council of Universities, Egypt
  • Dr Maurice Manning, Chancellor of the National University of Ireland
  • Professor Philippe Moreillon, Vice Rector (Research and International Relations), University of Lausanne, Switzerland

The Universities for Europe campaign aims to promote the importance of the UK’s membership of the EU for our universities – and why this matters to the British public, economy and society.
