EUA Aarhus Declaration 2011

Investing Today in Talent Tomorrow

European universities met in Aarhus from 12-15 April 2011 to discuss the centrality of nurturing greater numbers of talented individuals to the mission of universities and to securing Europe's future as a dynamic competitive global region. In the context of the present financial and economic crisis, EUA underlines that developing talent depends on sustained investment in universities.


For this reason conference participants reiterated our 2009 appeal to political leaders and decision makers to invest in education, research and innovation in the future EU budget for the period after 2013.
