The International Cooperation Office at the University of Tripoli encourages interested staff members to participate in the Global Survey on the Impact of COVID-19 on Higher Education designed by the International Association of Universities (IAU) and UNIMED.   The survey is available here:  Your contribution is essential to allow IAU to carry out an analysis focused on the South Med. It aims at gathering substantial data on the ways global higher education systems are affected by the pandemic from an institutional standpoint.  The results will be shared not only within the international higher education community, but also among global policy and decision-makers. IAU endeavours to raise concerns of universities and other HEIs in the current context by providing evidence-based data to underline the seriousness of the impact of COVID-19 on higher education and society at the global level.   Finally, the survey report will feed into the next UNESCO World Higher Education Conference (scheduled for 2022) – a multistakeholder intergovernmental event aimed at defining the future of higher education.

UNIMED, Libya Restart, A journey Analysis,

Universities are an essential element for a country’s reconstruction, for its future, the starting point for civil society, a place for discussing and proposing solutions. This consideration has been the base for the initiative Libya Restart. This is the reason why, UNIMED has started the collaboration with Libyan HEIs since 2015 for common participation in projects co-funded in the framework of the Erasmus+ programme. As natural consequence, in 2018 UNIMED decided to launch Libya Restart, an institutional initiative aimed at gaining a deeper understanding of the Libyan Higher Education System, through a research activity performed jointly by UNIMED staff and Libyan University academic and technical staff. Together, we spent more than one year collecting and analyzing data and documentation, discussing results, sharing ideas, making mistakes, finding alternative primary sources. Between 2018 and 2019 we have conducted an assessment work on the Higher Education system in Libya, its main priorities, needs and challenges, through the submission of a quantitative survey and a series of qualitative interviews. In this process, UNIMED has cooperated with the Presidencies and International Relations Offices of 16 Libyan universities arabic 9 English 34
