Internationalization and the EUTOPIA network of universities, the main thread of the 7th edition of the magazine 360upf
The seventh issue of 360upf, the University’s digital magazine that reviews current issues in an innovative format, has recently been published. Internationalization in the field of higher education and the EUTOPIA project of the alliance of European universities to which UPF has belonged since December 2109, are the focus of this edition.
Around this theme, the autumn issue of the magazine, available in three languages (Catalan, Spanish and English), devotes the presentation, the sections “Community”, with a lengthy report presenting EUTOPIA as a seed for future European universities, and “Zoom”, with an interview with Ferran Piqué, a student on the bachelor’s degree in Business Sciences-Management, one of the project ambassadors.
For further analysis, the section “Kaleidoscope”, entitled “Rethinking internationalization” includes opinion articles written by five renowned experts in the field of higher education in Europe. Isabel Valverde, a lecturer with the Department of Humanities and UPF vice-rector for internationalization projects, signs the “Special kaleidoscope” section, with an article in which she portrays internationalization as an essential driver of the University, which is complemented with several graphics.
The 7th issue of the magazine presents other content related to the internationalization of UPF, but in a more tangential manner: an interview with Mireia Trenchs, full professor of English Philology at the Department of Humanities, who is the guest of the “Profile” section; and two reports: the first, in the “Our alumni” section, which illustrates the background and projects of some twenty UPF alumni around the world, and the second, which reviews the work of UPF Language Volunteering, on the occasion of its 20th anniversary.
This edition of 360upf is completed by the “From campus” section, with a report devoted to the Diari de Barcelona, the oldest daily paper in continental Europe, which was re-launched last April thanks to an agreement between UPF and Barcelona City Council; “Quiztime”, dedicated to the 250th anniversary of the birth of Ludwig van Beethoven; “Panoramic view”, which takes a look at the essential news of the University, and the inaugural poster of the 2020-2021 academic year, a work by Albert Serra i Juanola.
