Last Thursday, October 29, the first meeting of the Stakeholders Group of the Alliance of the European University of the Seas took place. A successful meeting thanks to the attendance and participation of representatives of entities with broad expertise in areas related to the SEA-EU lines of action.
During the meeting, the members had the opportunity to introduce themselves and present their entities, companies, administrations and NGOs from the different countries that make up the alliance. The General Coordinator, José Antonio Muñoz Cueto, presented the values, the governance structure and the tasks carried out and programmed, giving a global vision of what a total change in Higher Education implies. The members enthusiastically shared ideas about how to collaborate in these tasks, showing great initiative and desire to contribute to the development of the territories that benefit from this.
