European Association of Institutions in Higher Education (EURASHE)
EURASHE, the European Association of Institutions in Higher Education, was founded in Patras (Greece) in 1990 as an international association promoting and emphasising professional higher education (PHE).
While EURASHE initially admitted only national organisations (such as councils of directors) as members, it later opened up membership to individual institutions. Nowadays, its members are colleges, polytechnics, university colleges, applied sciences, and universities with their professional training.
EURASHE’s mission is to strengthen the impact of innovative, high-quality professional higher education and related user-oriented research in Europe by representing professional higher education institutions and facilitating their multi-stakeholder cooperation and dialogue.
