On 15 February there will be a panel discussion on “Diversity and Openness as a Mission at Universities in Europe” at which executive members of the five universities that make up Eucor – The European Campus will discuss the social role and responsibility of the trinational university association in the light of increasing hate, discrimination and marginalization of certain public discourses. The German science journalist Jan-Martin Wiarda will moderate, as university representatives from Germany, France and Switzerland speak on how universities can rise to this challenge through increasing cross-border cooperation and intercultural exchange.
