The garagErasmus Foundation is pleased to welcome you to our Higher Education European Networking Summit (20 – 21 October 2022) that will take place in Brussels.

The Summit will represent a unique opportunity to discuss the newest update on the Erasmus+ and the most urging issues to which International offices are confronted. Thanks to the support of the European Commission, the French speaking Belgian National Agency (AEF) and the Italian National Agency INDIRE, the event will host high-level speakers and experts of the Erasmus+ Program and Higher Education.

Most importantly, the summit will be dedicated to creating new relations, synergies and partnerships among universities and higher education institutions (EQF 5-8). The main aim is to offer an open space for H.E. representatives to exchange ideas and doubts and to find common ground for further cooperation. It will also be a perfect opportunity to discuss the importance of Erasmus+ program and its mobility tools and to collect feedback from participant universities and organisations, including policy-makers.
