Technological, medical, social, cultural and educational innovation is changing the world, and those driving it decide on the direction. As creators and providers of knowledge and places of societal reflection, universities have a central role in shaping the future and in nurturing the next generation of leaders, innovators, entrepreneurs and researchers.\nMore photos available here.\n\n \n \nEurope’s universities are integral parts of local, national and international innovation ecosystems, working with partners in the private and public sectors and jointly developing solutions to societal and economic challenges. In this context, universities provide a unique environment, ensuring critical mass and the diversity needed to address these challenges. They also create institutional cultures geared towards innovation, whether it is in high-quality learning and teaching or ground-breaking research.\nEUA’s 2019 Annual Conference will focus on how universities can develop strategies to shape today’s innovation and that of the future. Through plenary and breakout sessions of various formats, including audience participation, the conference will provide insights into the policies and practices that enable innovation and entrepreneurship to thrive at universities.\nThe event will be of interest to institutional leaders (rectors, vice-rectors and heads of administration), higher education researchers and analysts, as well as representatives of other bodies involved in educational policy.\n \n \n \n \nHosted by:\n \n \n LOCATION:Sorbonne University, Paris, TRANSP:OPAQUE END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
