There is increased concern in European universities - also expressed by stakeholders - that graduates should be well prepared for a rapidly changing and evolving society and employment market. Growing emphasis on the generic and entrepreneurial competences and lifelong learning abilities required of the highly qualified critical citizen of the 21st century have led our universities to include programmes for the acquisition of these skills during and alongside degree programmes in all three cycles. The global nature of our society underlines the added value of international network cooperation in this area of university activity, avoiding narrow calls to respond to short-term needs and responding to the deeper educational mission of our universities.
