Studying megacities in EU: developing joined educational programs

Studying megacities in EU: developing joined educational programs

The aim of the event

Urbanization is an important trend in current land-use change. Up to 70% of the world population is projected to live in cities by 2050. Urbanization is a key issue, emphasizing important social, economical and environmental problems. Searching for solutions involve a broad sphere of experts in city governance, urban management, landscape design and planning. Educational sphere provides a unique chance to bring together the expertise of researchers and decision-makers to address the issues of sustainable urban management to future generations.

Russian and European students of today are the main future players of sustainable urban planning, management, design and governance. Growing up a new generation of young professionals with a European-level expertise is an ambitious and a very important goal of European-Russian integration in educational sphere.

Round table will provide a platform for discussion between university officials, coordinators of international programs, lecturers and students to search for the best solutions in educational collaboration. An existing experience in organizing joined and double-diploma projects and inclusive education between Russian and EU universities will be discussed. Especial attention will be given to organizing student and staff mobility. Round table will enable exploring new funding opportunities to support education collaboration by Russian (e.g. “5-100” program) and international (e.g. Erasmus+ mobility, Jean Monnet and Capacity building) projects. Establishing an international consortium for joined participation in international educational projects would be considered a promising outcome of the round table.
