The European University Association is organizing an annual conference on “Universities 2030: from vision to reality”. Registrations are now open for this online event. It will take place on April 22 and 23, 2021, and will include interactive audience participation and many networking opportunities.
Against the backdrop of the ongoing climate crisis, fundamental technological advances, labour market changes and the pressure Europe’s political systems are currently experiencing, to name only a few examples, an honest and ambitious debate is needed about the path universities should take to remain resilient and relevant. To contribute to this debate, EUA has developed a vision of open, engaged and autonomous European universities, outlined in the publication “Universities without walls – A vision for 2030”, and the 2021 EUA Annual Conference will provide a forum for discussions on some of the key actions needed to realise this vision.
The conference will feature sessions in multiple formats, with a rich variety of live speakers and video messages by high-level personalities such as European Council President Charles Michel. In addition, you will be able to network with your peers and access virtual booths presenting diverse EUA projects and activities.
