On 24 October, QMUL Malta welcomed delegates from INSULEUR to the brand-new QMUL Malta Campus. The visit was conducted as part of the programme while the annual INSULEUR General Assembly and Forum were held in Gozo. INSULEUR is the Network of the Insular Chambers of Commerce and Industry of the European Union. It was set up in the year 2000 with the primary objective of improving economic and social conditions in European insular regions. It continuously strives to even out the imbalances between continental and insular regions through: collaboration between members; formulating an integrated policy for the development of islands; and collaborating with European Union institutions and non-governmental organisations which share the same aims; encouraging initiatives and projects targeted towards fostering economic development in insular regions; making information available; and undertaking research activities to facilitate the aforementioned aims being carried out.
Currently, the Gozo Business Chamber holds the presidency of INSULEUR, and the visit to the new QMUL Malta campus demonstrated to the delegates that, despite being a small island, successful business ventures are possible if the right infrastructure is put in place.
