European Learning and Teaching Forum

The Forum provides an opportunity for university and other stakeholders to meet and discuss developments in learning and teaching at European universities.

  • Period: mid to late February
  • Event days: Thursday and Friday, with key player reception on Wednesday evening
  • Expected attendance: 300-350


EUA Annual Conference and General Assembly

EUA Annual Conferences are a unique platform for discussion, and an unrivalled opportunity for university leaders to network with peers from Europe. Through these events, university leaders can contribute to shaping policy at European level and gain valuable information on the latest trends and developments. The annual General Assembly of all EUA members is also an integral part of the Annual Conference.

  • Period: early to mid April
  • Event days: Thursday and Friday, with statutory and pre-conference meetings on Wednesday
