The reasons for internationalizing universities are manifold. Every university has its own focus. What many institutions have in common is that internationalization plays a central role within their overall strategy.
But why, exactly, is internationalization important and what goals can be pursued? This will be the subject of a conference on October 5th and 6th, 2020 entitled "Why Internationalization? Old and new rationales in diverse higher education systems". It will reflect on the motivations behind internationalization efforts at universities worldwide. Research findings will be contrasted with practical experiences. Experts from all over the world will discuss the opportunities and challenges of global networking.
Due to the corona pandemic, the conference will take place as a hybrid event. Interested parties from all over the world will have the opportunity to follow and actively participate in the event via a video conferencing system. The conference will be held in English.
Registration and further information are available on the website of the University of Bonn.
