Final call for registration: Arab-Euro Conference on Higher Education

06 April 2017

Participants from the European Higher Education Area are still in time to register for the Fourth Arab-Euro Conference on Higher Education (AECHE 4). Focused on research collaboration and capacity building among Arab and European universities, the event will be hosted by Mohammed V University in Rabat, Morocco from 24 to 26 April 2017.

Aeche 2AECHE 4 will explore how universities can develop research capacity and collaboration in research, addressing issues of high national, regional and global priority, such as water, energy, and the related environmental and sustainability challenges, which also require social sciences. In tackling these specific and strategic topics, the conference will focus more generally on the question of how Arab and European universities can work closer together in promoting research and research-based education, and explore relevant policy and funding frameworks. By involving both university leadership and policy makers, it will seek to provide concrete recommendations for policy making at the inter-regional level.

The event is addressed to university leadership from both regions, as well as heads of doctoral and graduate schools, individual scholars and project leaders involved in bi-regional research collaboration in energy, water and, generally, in sustainability, from the sciences, engineering and social sciences. It is also addressed to policy makers and representatives from enterprise and innovative industries related to the issues. 

While registration closed late last month, EUA can exceptionally accept late registrations from European participants until 12 April via email to

AECHE is a joint initiative of EUA and the Association of Arab Universities (AARU) that brings together both Associations’ members, with the collaboration of the University of Barcelona.
