The recent transnational meeting of this Erasmus + project focused on the promotion of student participation, planned in Brussels, but hosted virtually due to COVID-19, has laid the foundations of the first European student participation index.
In this meeting, the complexities of a challenge of these characteristics have been revealed, since it is intended to measure how participative the higher education systems of the European Union are, starting with a pilot test with Spain, Portugal and Austria as the main objective.
The next appointment marked on the calendar of this European network of student participation will bring together experts from different countries of the continent on the 20th of this month, to address the first version of this innovative index in a transversal way, among students, managers and researchers.
The partner institutions of STUPS have taken advantage of this multilateral meeting to strengthen their commitment to equality and inclusion, which, they consider, should permeate all student participation and, therefore, all activities and results of the project.
In addition, this virtual event has also presented the progress of the future Guide to Innovative Practices for the Promotion of Student Participation, currently under development, and other news from the network, which looks askance at the progression of the pandemic, which has so much university activity disrupted.
