AUS Attendance in the EURASHE General Assembly

On December 11, AUS attended the General Assembly of the European Association of Institutions in Higher Education (EURASHE) for the first time since becoming a full member of the organization. Amongst the topics discussed were the introduction of eight new members, an update on the most recent European policy developments, the latest news on activities and funding opportunities, and the approval of membership fees for 2024.

EURASHE's mission is to strengthen the impact of innovative, high-quality professional higher education and related user-oriented research in Europe by representing institutions and facilitating their multi-stakeholder cooperation and dialogue. AUS joined EURASHE this year and, by doing so, has gained access to a platform of resources, networking, and capacity-building events, as well as a voice that enables its representation in European educational policy.


EURASHE is a Brussels-based organization, founded in Patras (Greece) in 1990 as an international association promoting and emphasizing professional higher education (PHE). EURASHE has more than 50 members all around Europe, through which it represents more than 500 universities of applied sciences, university colleges, and other institutions of PHE in Europe.

Three purposes were at the origin of EURASHE:

  • to promote the interests of PHE at a national and European level;
  • to cooperate internationally on the development of PHE;
  • to promote internationalization within its member institutions.
