"The country's universities are accelerating the return to the lifelong learning process within the framework to be defined by the state," the Extraordinary Synod of Rectors, held yesterday by teleconference, said in a statement. As he adds, "the Summit has already unanimously expressed the need for a return from last July."

The Minister of Education and Religions, Niki Kerameos, the Deputy Minister of Education, in charge of Higher Education, Angelos Syrigos and the Secretary General of Higher Education, Apostolis Dimitropoulos, were invited to the Summit and participated in part of the discussion.

The main topic of discussion was the transition of the operation of universities to a lifelong educational process under pandemic conditions during the winter semester of the academic year 2021-2022, which begins in early October.

"The serious political problems associated with the safe transition to lifelong learning were brought to the attention of the political leadership of the ministry, with a view to issuing ministerial decisions, and the priorities for funding and the need for concrete measures to support the transition were formulated," the statement said. .

Ms. Kerameos assured, according to the announcement, that "the issuance of the JMC that will govern the lifelong educational operation will proceed rapidly". In addition, he informed the Summit about the allocation of 400 new faculty positions in universities.

The announcement of the Summit refers to the high rate of vaccination of the university community, noting that vaccination "is the most important pillar of lifelong learning in the current conditions". He especially welcomes the student body for its response and appeals to those who have not been vaccinated "to follow the vast majority of the community."

"The Synod expresses its optimism for a safe transition to lifelong learning and calls on members of the university community to mobilize," the statement concluded.
