EUA Spring Conference in Barcelona (27 – 29 March 2008)

29 November 2007

EUA is delighted to announce that it will be holding its Spring Conference at the University of Barcelona, Spain from the 27-29 March 2008.

The Barcelona Conference – entitled the Governance of European Universities Post 2010 (II): Enhancing Institutional Mission and Profiles - will continue the debate from last month’s EUA conference in Wroclaw on the crucial issue of institutional and system governance in Europe. During the meeting, participants will examine the policies and strategies being pursued by higher education institutions and European, regional or national authorities to improve the effectiveness of increasingly diverse higher education institutions and systems.

This is becoming more and more important across Europe, as universities look to respond to changing societal demands and rising global competition in higher education. The challenge for universities is to define their specific institutional profiles and place in the system by ensuring complementarity and critical mass, thus also contributing to the improvement of social cohesion and the efficiency of the system as a whole.

The conference will be of particular interest to institutional leaders: rectors, vice rectors and heads of administration.

Registration and full programme information will be available soon through the EUA website.
