Symposion was created in 1992. Symposion is run by a steering committee agreed on at the annual meeting. The steering committee should:

• formulate and prepare strategies and activities for the network based on suggestions from previous annual meetings,

• plan the annual meeting together with the host institution representative,

• decide on membership issues,

• handle arising questions in between the meetings,

• manage the Symposion website and general communication within the network,

• appoint an acting chair.

The steering committee will meet as required. The steering committee members sit on a voluntary basis. The steering committee comprises of a minimum of 4 persons and each partner can be represented in the steering committee.


Symposion organises annual meetings for all members as a forum to develop future cooperation, projects and exchange experience. 



The Symposion members include European universities and higher education institutions within the educational field. There is no membership fee. Costs for travel to network meetings as well as subsistence costs should be funded by the participants' institutions. The host of the annual meeting is responsible for meeting rooms, supply and

facilities. The host can recommend and may assist in finding accommodation.

The institutions taking part in Symposion should have at least one bilateral agreement within the network. We expect that at least one person represents each partner at annual meetings. The member should have knowledge of education, the institutions study offers as well as the institutions internationalisation processes.

The members agree on a new partner by asking the steering group to invite them to the annual meeting. Members missing three successive annual meetings may be excluded from by the steering group.
