Social responsibility and social innovation were approached from different angles such as strategic policies connected to greening, engaging with the Social Development Goals, multidisciplinary approaches to work with vulnerable populations or generating resilience in recovery times. This was also the occasion for the launch of the Think Tank for the Social Mission of Universities, in a panel that provided an overview of approaches to inclusion in both Europe and Latin America, as well as good practices such as refugee engagement and employability and mobility-oriented Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion programmes.

The event concluded with the presentation of a new initiative of the TT4Doctoral Education, the SGroup PhD Training and Competition
