EMPA Presidency 2016-2017

During the presidency of the German University of Administrative Sciences Speyer we would like to foster and deepen the relations between the EMPA partners. We would like to develop instruments for a better recognition of academic achievements and common basic modules. Another important topic should be a more intensive teaching and research exchange. Finally we will also consider to take substantial steps to promote the network with a broader dimension in other parts of Europe (i.e. the Scandinavian and Southern European countries).
