We invite you to the debates: Why do we need the Fahrenheit Universities?

The development of assumptions and possible scenarios for the federalization of HEIs and their further integration, the implementation of joint international research projects, as well as the strengthening of publishing activities and conducting a common promotion and ranking policy are just some of the tasks of the Fahrenheit Universities of Gdańsk (FarU). We would like to discuss the idea and objectives of its establishment, the main directions of further development, as well as the undertaken and planned initiatives with the academic communities of the member universities during debates. The Rectors of the Medical University of Gdańsk, the Gdańsk University of Technology and the University of Gdańsk together with the Director of the University Union will participate in the talks. Local government authorities have also confirmed their participation.
