After the experience of the URN NET project (link to the USR NET section) the partners stayed with the desire to continue investigating within the framework of the RSU (University Social Responsibility) and for this reason we decided to follow up on the work done in the last three years with an even more focused approach. This is how EUSRExcel – Towards a European University Social Responsibility Excellence Award was born. (link http://socialresponsibilityaward.eu/)
This is a Project financed by the Erasmus + program, Key Action 2 Strategic Associations. After having created a European Network of Socially Responsible Universities, the next step is to develop a system of uniform indicators. That allows an evaluation of University Responsibility to be carried out and which is the same for all Higher Education Institutions in Europe.
EUSRExcel aims to achieve this objective through numerous instruments such as: research, state of the art, training for university staff and digital instruments for self-evaluation. In addition to this, the creation of a SR Quality Seal is to be granted by an external evaluation committee that will follow the guidelines established within the framework of the same project.
