“The University: between Research, Learning and Employability” is the first EduSeminar from a series of initiatives which will be further developed by the OES’ Romanian branch, whose official launch will also take place on this occasion. These EduSeminars aim at fostering a debate on redefining the mission of The University, approaching topics such as the relevance and impact of university research, performance management and the way it redefines higher education, the role and responsibility of higher education institutions towards students (in the process of teaching and learning) and towards society at large (in promoting the results of their research, or in preparing their graduates for the labour market). This first edition aims at launching a more in-depth debate on the mission of The University starting from an understanding of the challenges it faces and aiming at building the fulcrum which could ensure an equilibrium between research – learning – employability.
