UNeECC meeting in Madrid, 18 September 2009

Since 2008 UNeECC organizes an informal network meeting during the annual conference of the European Association for International Education (EAIE). This gathering of international relations officers is a unique opportunity to meet face-to-face with potential new members.  On 18 September 2009 the Universidad Europea de Madrid, she herself a new member, welcomed 15 representatives from 10 different institutions. During the meeting Gyöngyi Pozsgai and László Komlosi gave an overview of UNeECC’s activities, whereas representatives from the Mykolas Romeris and Gediminas universities in Vilnius warmed the participants to the programme of next month’s annual conference and general assembly of UNeECC. From the exchange of ideas that ensued, it was obvious that the initiatives now taken to get students involved in UNeECC are met with approval. The participants also discussed the problem of getting more researchers involved in the network.
