Why do we need the Fahrenheit Universities? Invitation to debates

The development of the assumptions and possible scenarios for the federalisation of the universities and for their further integration, the implementation of joint research projects on an international scale, as well as enhancing the publishing activity and pursuing joint promotion and ranking policy are only some of the tasks of the Fahrenheit Universities (FarU). During the debates, we want to talk to the academic communities of the member universities about the FarU’s idea and objectives, main development trends as well as about current and planned initiatives. The Rectors of the Medical University of Gdańsk, Gdańsk University of Technology and University of Gdańsk along with the FarU’s Director will take part in the talks. Attendance has been confirmed by the self-government authorities, too.

The debates will be held on the following dates:
