© AU PhotoThe European University Association’s Annual Conference 2011 at Aarhus University, Denmark marks the 10th Anniversary of the EUA.

The anniversary provides the opportunity to take stock and consider where to go next. The EUA Annual Conference 2011 will launch discussions of future priorities and the most important milestones for EUA in the next decade.
The theme of the conference is talent development – a topic of high relevance for the future competitiveness of Europe. We face the challenge of making the European area for higher education and research an attractive destination for the best researchers and students in the world without, however, compromising the provision of mass education. With the Bologna Process a united Europe has already demonstrated that the European model is extremely competitive and durable. Now it is time to identify ways of using this position to attract and develop the bright minds of tomorrow.


Participants in the EUA Annual Conference 2011 will:

  • Contribute to the discussion of EUA’s priorities for the next decade
  • Discuss ways for Europe to increase its attractiveness for research talent
  • Become acquainted with best practice in the organisation of career development paths for young researchers
  • Consider the challenge of balancing talent development with the obligation to provide more young Europeans with higher education learning opportunities
  • Exchange ideas on how to strengthen collaboration across borders on the management of quality and content in the third Bologna cycle
  • Learn about state-of-the-art approaches to attracting and retaining talent internationally


The EUA Annual Conference 2011 and EUA 10th Anniversary at Aarhus University will bring together university leaders, researchers, students, policymakers and stakeholders to discuss the challenge of nurturing the talent present in Europe’s higher education institutions. Please join us at Aarhus University for EUA’s Annual Conference 2011 and EUA 10th Anniversary and share your thoughts and ideas with colleagues from all over Europe.
