Meeting of members of the Network of Academic Societies Community of Practice Platform - Strengthening Networking of Academic Society Networks

The reality of today’s developing society doesn’t limit the tasks of the academic community to the development and preservation of basic science but also involves active comprehension, dissemination, and practical application of new knowledge. At the same time, the activity of professors does not only include educating future professionals, and technical and social staff, but also participation in the creation and implementation of innovative projects. Reflecting the current needs of the academic community, we have to formalize the Network of Academic Societies to ensure its operational efficiency and sustainability. This, in turn, will stimulate the functioning of a sustainable platform and the development of the Community of Practice, thereby forming a communication system to support higher and additional professional education.
