The German U15, The Guild of European Research-Intensive Universities, and Udice emphasise the necessity to strengthen international cooperation in research to meet global challenges.
Ahead of the ERA Forum’s Standing Subgroup on the Global Approach meeting at the beginning of May, where Member States representatives will be invited to exchange on the principles for international cooperation in research and innovation, the German U15, The Guild of European Research-Intensive Universities and Udice wish to reiterate their commitment to strengthen international cooperation in research, while mitigating the challenges associated with international partnerships.
With Russia’s attack on Ukraine from 24 February, and at times of unstable geopolitical context, the three university networks express their uncompromising solidarity with Ukrainian universities. They commit to providing help and support for students and researchers from Ukraine affected by the war, and for Russian staff and students who face persecution for opposing it.
At the same time, the German U15, The Guild, and Udice emphasise that articulating a fair, democratic and sustainable response to the challenges Europe and the world are currently facing requires an effective cooperation between research universities worldwide.
