The Compostela Group of Universities and the University of Minho agree upon the online organisation of the XXVI General Assembly of the CGU to guarantee health safety and the continuity of the annual meeting of the network’s members.

The Compostela Group of Universities and the University of Minho, host of the XXVI General Assembly of the network, have decided that this year the annual meeting of the Higher Education institutions affiliated to the network will take place online. This decision underlines the commitment of both to the health security of the university communities of the association’s members and at the same time ensures the annual meeting of its General Council.

The University of Minho will provide the technical means to facilitate the online organisation of the event from 21 to 22 September 2020. As for the programme, the preliminary version is available on the page of the XXVI General Assembly of the Compostela Group of Universities on our website. As usual, on the first day, the activity will focus on the General Council meeting, as well as on the award ceremonies of the XXIV International Prize Grupo Compostela-Xunta de Galicia and the research pitch and video contests. On the second day, the Compostela Dialogues in Higher Education will address issues such as the impact of the COVID-19 and sustainability in the university sphere.

Soon, a form will be activated so that those interested in attending the XXVI General Assembly of the Compostela Group of Universities can formalise their registration.
