Kent to host European network meeting

Kent will host the annual meetings of the SGroup European Universities Network (SGroup) 6th to 8th November 2019.

This event will see representatives from the SGroup’s 32 member institutions from 17 European countries attend as well as the network’s associate partners from Armenia, China and Colombia.

The Network, which was established in 1989, is based on four core areas of co-operation – internationalisation strategy, academic collaboration, academic mobility, and transfer of knowledge.

Kent joined the SGroup in April 2011 and has used its membership of the network to strengthen both its European and international partnerships, giving rise to a range of mobility opportunities for students and staff.

The SGroup Think Tank, which focuses on global engagement, will meet prior to the main SGroup meetings, on 4th and 5th November. These meetings will focus on the network’s collaboration with Africa, China and Latin America.
