A three-day meeting of universities associated with the Young European Research Universities Network (YERUN) was held at Université Dauphine in Paris, where, among other things, a new member, the University of Tallinn, was welcomed.

Leaders, coordinators, and the YERUN office from Brussels gathered in Paris at Université Paris Dauphine-PSL from 19-21 March for the YERUN General Assembly. Over three days, participants discussed key topics for the network: artificial intelligence in higher education, the valorisation of knowledge and the impact of European elections on the internationalisation of education.

The issue of artificial intelligence in science and the associated challenges and opportunities for the future of research was addressed during a workshop involving special guests: Alistair Nolan, Senior Policy Analyst at the OECD, and Tristan Cazenave, Professor of Artificial Intelligence at Université Paris Dauphine-PSL.

Peter Dröll, Director of Prosperity at DG RTD, European Commission, also appeared at the convention. In his speech, he emphasised the role of research as a motor for sustainable competitiveness, the valorisation of knowledge, and spoke about the sustainability of Europe from the perspective of the 2050 strategy.

During the meeting, the progress of the implementation work on the CONNECTbyYERUN platform was also presented, which will facilitate research collaboration between representatives of networked universities. The platform is scheduled to be launched in July 2024.

In addition, the EU Research Area Living guidelines on the Responsible Use of Generative AI in Research were published with the contribution of YERUN experts. 

Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń was represented by Professor Wojciech Wysota, Vice-Rector for Research, and Lucyna Kejna, YRERUN Coordinator at NCU and Head of the Department of Research.
