In the current social situation, and even more in this time of the pandemic generated by Covid-19, education remains one of the most credible and central processes for access to knowledge and for civic, cultural and socio-economic development. In particular, higher education institutions play a fundamental, unique and core role in seeking and pursuing a vision for education and training that encompasses being culturally different. This is crucial in the era of globalisation, cultural diversity, ubiquitous digital social networks and where the processes of access to knowledge are multiple and challenging. This challenge is reflected in the strategic framework for European co-operation in education and training, which pursues four common EU objectives: to make lifelong learning a reality; to improve the quality of education and training; to promote equity, social cohesion and active citizenship, and to enhance creativity and innovation at all levels of education and training.
