The 2020 Annual Conference of the European University Association (EUA) "Universities building a better Europe" will be hosted by Gdańsk University of Technology in Poland from 16-17 April 2020. It will look at the crucial role that universities play in creating knowledge and fostering democratic and sustainable societies.
The impact of universities on wellbeing and the development of a thriving, competitive Europe stems from educating future leaders, professionals, researchers and citizens. It equally comes from curiosity-driven research aimed at identifying and meeting the broad challenges we all face and outreach to local and global industry and governments to foster much-needed innovation. Yet demonstrating and communicating universities’ impact at the societal level is a challenge. Universities need strong leadership, a focused strategic approach, as well as coordinated efforts across Europe and beyond.
The 2020 EUA Annual Conference will provide a platform to explore how universities are making a difference, how their impact can be maximised and how to give visibility to their key role in addressing broad challenges. It will feature a mix of plenary and parallel sessions, including interactive audience participation, encouraging a rich exchange of experiences and good practices.
The event is of interest to university leadership and other university staff working at the management and strategic level, as well as academics. It also welcomes students, policymakers and other stakeholders in higher education, research and innovation.
Members of the press are invited to attend the Annual Conference free of charge. EUA does not reimburse travel or lodging. The registration deadline is 30 March 2020.
