The EU referendum debate and its impact on British universities: views from outside the UK

29 February 2016 - the first in a series of Universities for Europe events hosted by Universities UK to discuss the value of European Union membership.

An international panel of experts will meet to discuss the value of European Union membership for universities, its impact on collaboration and competitiveness, and the potential implications of the UK referendum for future collaboration.

Attendees are invited to hear notable international university leaders from the US, Egypt, Ireland and Switzerland discuss their views on this prominent issue.

The event will be chaired by Professor Paul Boyle, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Leicester, and confirmed speakers include:

Allan Goodman, President and Chief Executive Officer, Institute of International Education (IIE)

Professor Ashraf Hatem, Secretary General, Supreme Council of Universities, Egypt

• Dr Maurice Manning, Chancellor of the National University of Ireland

Professor Philippe Moreillon, Vice Rector (Research and International Relations), University of Lausanne, Switzerland

The Universities for Europe campaign aims to promote the importance of the UK’s membership of the EU for our universities – and why this matters to the British public, economy and society.
