Part of the Erasmus+ programme

The University and Students Forum

The University and Students Forum represents University Networks, European University Alliances and European student organisations. It meets twice a year.


The forum has a consultative role on defining the priorities and timeline of the digitisation roadmap. It also helps networks, alliances and student organisations to communicate together and sync their activities with the development of Erasmus Without Paper, especially in the broader context of the European Education Area.
