ECIU updates 12.10.2017


This week, the ECIU Vice-Rectors for Research meeting has taken place at the University of Nottingham, UK. The University of Nottingham joined the ECIU network on the 1st of January, 2017.

In the meeting, Pro Vice-Chancellor Sarah O’Hara of the Univerity of Nottingham shared their vision and experience with the ECIU rectors. The University of Nottingham has five interdisciplinary Global Research Themes; culture and communication, digital futures, health and wellbeing, sustainable societies, and transformative technologies.

The University of Nottingham fits very well into the ECIU profile of being an innovative, entrepreneurial and internationally-minded university, with very close links to the city of Nottingham and the surrounding economic environment.

There are many similarities with the ECIU members regarding the entrepreneurial mindset of students and staff and the innovative approaches to education and internationalization. Their experience with having two campuses in Asia (Malaysia and China) add interesting international strategic alliances to the network.
