EUA has launched the call for contributions for its 2019 Annual Conference on “Driving innovation in Europe’s universities”.
The conference will be hosted on 11-12 April 2019 by Sorbonne University in Paris, France. It will focus on the pivotal role of universities in educating future generations of entrepreneurs and innovators, and in identifying and tackling related technological, societal and educational challenges. The EUA Annual Conference will build on EUA’s work with its members on developing strategies for shaping today’s innovation, as well as that of the future.
EUA is therefore seeking proposals from leaders and senior managers with institution-wide responsibilities from EUA members that demonstrate or explore how universities promote innovation and find solutions to present or anticipated challenges. Two types of proposals are invited for submission:
1) presentations focussing on institutional case studies or policy approaches
2) interactive working sessions providing participants with a structured exercise
Each selected contribution will be allowed one reduced fee for the Annual Conference.
For full details on the type of contributions sought and the submission process, please consult the documents below. The deadline to submit proposals is 8 January 2019. Registration for the event will open in early December 2018.
