This briefing looks at the impact of the Covid-19 crisis on higher education in Europe over the past six months. In particular, it examines the sudden shift to emergency remote learning and teaching, the impact on internationalisation and mobility, as well as the effects on research.
The publication also discusses the value of collaboration and the unique situation of Europe. Finally, the briefing looks forward to the autumn and a “new normal”. Notably, the publication includes a list of useful references on the topic that come from an array of sources. The briefing, by EUA expert Michael Gaebel, was originally published by the International Association of Universities in August 2020.
