Starting this autumn, EURASHE will lead one new project, the SAPS project on Supporting Apprenticeships between Professional Higher Education & Small and Medium Enterprises. In addition EURASHE will also be a partner in two further projects: IEWEXHE on Integrating Entrepreneurship and Work Experience into Higher Education; and INTELEC on International Teaching & Learning for Employability and Citizenship.

Since the beginning of 2016 EURASHE and UASnet have supported the development of new applied research indicators in cooperation with U-Multirank. EURASHE members also participated in the pilot survey of these indicators. As a result, the fourth release of U-Multirank will include two new questions in the institutional questionnaire, and a new ready-made ranking on applied research activities will be published after the 2017 release.

Registrations are still open for the 11th European Quality Assurance Forum (EQAF), which will take place on 17-19 November 2016 in Ljubljana (Slovenia). This year's edition is entitled "Quality in context - embedding improvement" and will be hosted by the Slovenian Student Union and the University of Ljubljana. The deadline for the early-bird registration fee is 3 October 2016. EURASHE members are encouraged to register for EQAF - they benefit from a reduced fee.

EURASHE will gather its General Assembly on 27 September 2016 following its seminar on applied research. During this General Assembly and in conjunction with other meetings of the Board and Working Groups until the end of the year, members will elect one further Board member, will continue to determine the framework and composition of the Committee for Strategic Advice, will discuss the location of the annual conference in 2018 and will set up the work plan for 2017.

The Lifelong Learning Platform organises a yearly evaluation on the implementation of the Erasmus+ programme. The survey aims to provide decision-makers with an evaluation coming from the programme's beneficiaries on what works and what could be improved. The survey closes on 15 September 2016.

The 14th European Week of Regions and Cities will focus on the challenges currently facing Europe's regions and cities. Building on the implementation cycle of EU cohesion policy programmes, the event will be aligned with the political priorities of the European Commission's and the European Committee of the Regions for 2016 and with the interests of the partner regions and cities. Under the headline 'Regions and cities for sustainable and inclusive growth', some 100 sessions, seminars and meetings will be organised.
