Klaipeda Communiqué

Academic Vice Presidents Roundtable

As part of the concluding activities of the DigiUR project, on February 24, 2023 an online roundtable was held with Academic Vice Presidents (AVPs) of selected universities. The overarching topic was on promoting undergraduate research and preparing a joint Klaipeda Communiqué on “Strengthening the European Network on Undergraduate Research“.

A final version of the Communique was signed by the participating AVPs.


Video Statements by Academic Vice Presidents on the Importance of Undergraduate Research

The Academic Vice Presidents responded to the two questions:
– How do you see the importance, significance, and prevalence of undergraduate research in your university?
– Is undergraduate research strategically promoted in your university or how should it be promoted?
All statements were recorded in 2022.
