HRK calls for European Education, Science and Innovation Community
“The European Union's current crisis demands new political thinking and action,” says the President of the German Rectors' Conference (HRK), Prof Dr Horst Hippler. “Europe is looking for supports to shore up the ailing unification process. It must confront the enormous challenges evident not only in the fields of business, research and innovation, but also, and especially, in the area of education and culture. This is shown by the political tensions in Europe connected with the influx of refugees, the rise of populist parties and Brexit.” The HRK General Assembly made a statement last week calling for European strategy for innovation, science, education and culture worthy of that name.
