Rather, it has become a reality for the broad spectrum of European institutions, which affects all elements of the university mission. The EUA Annual Conference will provide a forum for participants to identify the institutional policies required to meet the challenges and reap the full benefits of further internationalisation.

In plenary and working group sessions, speakers from Europe and further afield will explore different drivers of the globalisation of higher education and the design and implementation of institutional internationalisation strategies. The conference will also address the profound changes taking place in the structure and form of national higher education systems and the extent to which these changes stem from pressure to make systems more efficient and internationally competitive.

There will also be the opportunity for further discussion of global rankings and their impact, with EUA’s second Rankings Review due to be published and presented at the event.

The EUA Annual Conference will bring together university leaders, researchers, students, policy makers and partner stakeholders. 

EUA members are also encouraged to attend the EUA General Assembly prior to the main conference. This will include the election of three new members to the EUA Board.
