A vital part of EAUC work is developing and maintaining strong, collaborative relationships with other sector organisations for the benefit of our Members. One of the key relationships we have is the Association of University Directors of Estates (AUDE). The Association promotes excellence in the strategic planning, management, operation and development of Higher Education estates and facilities.

As part of this relationship with AUDE, we provide a quarterly briefing paper which is submitted to AUDE members which ensures the voice of the EAUC and its Members are heard at this strategic level. It outlines what the EAUC is working on, current themes, legislation, relevant events and activities taking place in Member institutions. This is crucial to maintain a clear, open dialogue to scope opportunities for collaboration.

Please share this amongst your colleagues, especially those in the Estates team (as relevant).
