While France holds the presidency of the Council of the European Union, Udice brought together some of its main European and international partners on March 7 in Marseille for an exchange on the challenges of international cooperation in an uncertain geopolitical context.
The discussions of this forum entitled “Research universities, the driving force for a Europe of Sciences” were marked by the invasion of Ukraine by Russia and its impact on academic and scientific relations.
At the end of this meeting, Udice, the Guild of European Research Universities and the German U15 worked on the definition of common principles on international cooperation in research.
