The DAAD, together with the Norwegian Directorate for Higher Education and Skills (HK-dir) and the Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange (NAWA) organised this event on students at risk, where European policy makers and stakeholders discussed how a European solution can be accomplished to help students in dreadful situations. Prior to the event, the three host organisations published a joint proposal [PDF 294.55 KB] for actions at European level in support of students at risk.
This line of discussion was taken up in a working meeting in March 2022 and resulted in an appeal to the European Commission.
