The Guild publishes its Annual Report for 2019-2020
The document, named “A Year of Transitions and Opportunities”, looks back at the key areas of engagement of The Guild network over the past year, and gives an overview of its working groups and activities. More broadly, the annual report reflects on the network’s achievements and looks at the challenges lying ahead.
As Vincent Blondel, Chair of The Guild, points out, in this “year of profound change” affected by the coronavirus pandemic, “The Guild has become an important forum for collective discussion about how universities might transform in the long term as a result of this crisis,” considering that “the crisis has only added the importance of The Guild, and we are most pleased, in this very special context, to welcome our 20th member, Babeș-Bolyai University from Romania.”
Jan Palmowski, Secretary-General of The Guild, considered this year as a period of flourishment marked by valuable endeavours such as the partnership with the African Research Universities Alliance (ARUA): “The Guild positioned itself as a network seeking to inspire not only the European Union, but also national funders and governments, as well as the wider university sector in Europe,” he said.
