Prof. Josep Maria Garrell, URL Rector and SACRU President, opens the General  Assembly of FUCE



Prof. Josep Maria Garrell, Universitat Ramon Llull Rector and SACRU President,  has opened the General Assembly of FUCE (European Federation of Catholic Universities). The FUCE’s General Assembly of this year is taking place in Barcelona between 11 – 13 November.

FUCE was created in 1991 with the conviction of being able to offer a new contribution to the network of Catholic universities, building on the positive path of European integration, now close to the achievement of the European Union. At the end of the 1990s, the FUCE conducted a comparative study that revealed the wealth and commonalities between the different Catholic universities in Europe. It thus showed the need to strengthen existing links, even after the implementation of the Bologna Process, which since June 1999 aimed at making academic qualifications of European universities comparable and encouraging the mobility of students, teachers and researchers.

FUCE brings together Catholic universities in Europe and Lebanon.
