By the end of November 2020, the University of Szeged joined the constantly increasing number of partners of the SGroup Universities in Europe Network, as the first Hungarian partner institution.
The Network provides opportunities for exchanging information and collaboration for all of its partners from 21 nations all around the world.
SGroup is an international non-profit association established in 1988 for modern and internationally orientated universities with the aim of expanding collaboration opportunities in education and research through the transfer of knowledge and development of strategic alliances. SGroup has successfully put multiple projects and collaborations in action, it’s most notable current actions are Erasmus Without Paper 2.0 aiming to modernise the Erasmus+ programme, Think Tank Academy supporting collaborations of HEIs, the Rec-Mat project boosting mobility between Europe and Latin-Americas and the SUCTIA project for internationalisation.
SGroup regularly hosts various conferences and webinars, currently focusing on topics of general and social sustainability - especially due to the current issues caused by the pandemic. Representatives of University of Szeged have been participating on these events for the last couple of months, where they had the chance to learn about and be inspired by the educational, social and sustainability methods of the partner institutions. Joining the network will help SZTE to transfer its knowledge and extend its educational, research and mobility platforms in the future – outside the borders of Europe as well.
