Panel 1: Working towards balanced mobility

International cooperation between institutions and mobility by students, academics and researchers have become indispensable parts of today's higher education and research sector. For the European Union and China this cooperation is an ideal way to increase mutual understanding as well as tackle common challenges. Both regions are keen to attract students and researchers, and EU-funded programmes can be a catalyst for this. What more should we be doing on both sides to increase these flows? How can we work together to interest Europeans in studying, teaching or researching in China? We hear from universities managing Erasmus+ exchange programmes, the experience of students and researchers, and a project to help promote China to incoming European students. We also look at some of the mechanics: are recognition issues a barrier to mobility

Panel 2: The limits of face-to-face education

Improving digital skills and digital systems is a key priority for Europe, and this is reflected in its new Digital Education Action Plan. The COVID-19 pandemic has created new needs for digital teaching and learning, and identified some weaknesses. What can Europe and China learn from each other about the way our education systems are reacting to the pandemic? More importantly, what is the role that digital will continue to play as an element of teaching and learning?
