An association of leading European Universities has been assessing its achievements and looking ahead to ensure international cooperation. Newly focused with the aim of creating a new pan-European network of future leaders ‘’…committed to interacting with the wider community and across nations…’’ entitled EUROPAEUM, it will ask 30 scholars to suggest solutions to social and political issues such as Human Trafficking, youth unemployment and regional separatism.
