The Forum's thematic roundtables and workshops

Campus France Forum thematic roundtables and workshops meet several times a year to discuss chosen topics, with the help of representatives of member institutions.

Objective of the Campus France Forum projects

Each year, Campus France Forum members work on student international mobility and the promotion of French higher education in thematic roundtables and workshops. These workgroups are chaired by representatives of the member institutions. A seminar is held mid-year to draft a mid-year progress report.

The conclusions of the roundtables and workshops are provided during the annual general meeting of the Forum at the end of year.  They are particularly used to draw the recommendations to the Campus France board of directors and supervising ministries.

Check out the 2017 activity report of the Forum for the conclusions of all roundtables.
