EMREX Unleashed!

Come and hear about the future of student mobility and free flowing student data!

The EMREX project arranges its third EMREX Seminar at the University of Bologna 30th November 2017. 




Why and how to participate

EMREX is the solution for electronic transfer of achievement records between higher education institutions in Europe – and beyond! After a successful field trial the network is ready to roll-on, and new partners are getting ready to join.

Come and see what EMREX can be used for, how it is connected to Erasmus and EU, and how it will be organized in the years to come.

In this third EMREX seminar titled “EMREX Unleashed!” we will discuss the future of student mobility and show you, why you should join this important and inevitable network.

Invitation as sent out (agenda on this page more up to date)

Sign up here (registration is now closed, but you can inquire about free seats from your local EMREX partner)

Please note, that the night before at 7.30 PM we will organize a guided citywalk in the beautiful old city centre of Bologna for everyone interested.
