The Glocal University

Engaged universities, both at regional and global level

Higher Education institutions (HEi) are identified as key players from both global and local perspectives, since they have the singular responsibility of giving adequate answers to both legitimate needs and interests. On one side, HEi should contribute to the achievement of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and of the Goals and targets settle down on it (SDGs).  On the other side, HEi should contribute to the development and progress of their immediate societies, guaranteeing a positive impact on their region. Only HEi with glocal vision and mission can make compatible these two approaches.
