The signing means a new step to make Sant julià de Lòria become the parish of knowledge and investigation
The dean of the European university (eUniv), Antoni Noguero, and the mayor of Sant Julià de Lòria, Josep Majoral, have signed this Thursday an agreement of collaboration. Majoral has asserted that “this agreement is a one more step so that the parish can become a university city”. Noguero, on his behalf, has announced that with this agreement, the eUniv will contribute to the achievement of the university city. The covenant regulates a relationship between the City Council and the university based in the cooperation in education and research.
The eUniv’s dean has stated that the purpose is to collaborate in the internationalization of the parish in the field of education, especially regarding the TIC’s sector, which is at the time in expansion, as it has been seen during the pandemic. The cooperation does not include any provision nor economic importance, since it is of institutional nature. The university has, as well, asked to the town City Council “our initiatives”, such as academic events or PhD presentations, “to be broadcasted to the parish through the communication mechanisms that already exist”.
The European University has also proposed several initiatives, which the City Council will evaluate, such as making the Quality Agency of Higher Education of Andorra (AQUA) to settle in the parish or making possible the arrival of the Summer Catalan University (UCE), which is currently taking place in Prada de Conflent.
