The 2021 EUA Annual Conference “Universities 2030: From vision to reality” took place online on 22-23 April. Against the backdrop of the ongoing climate crisis, fundamental technological advances, labour market changes and the pressure Europe’s political systems are currently experiencing, an honest and ambitious debate is needed about the path universities must take to remain resilient and relevant.
In EUA’s vision for this path, outlined in the publication “Universities without walls – A vision for 2030”, Europe’s universities are open learning communities engaged in the creation of a sustainable global society, as well as autonomous and accountable entities striving for continuous improvement. Universities’ core missions – learning and teaching, research, innovation and contribution to culture – will play an instrumental role in universities’ efforts to realise this vision.
The 2021 EUA Annual Conference provided a forum for discussion on how to make this vision a reality. It also focused on the role universities play in building a competitive and sustainable Europe, in collaboration with global partners. The 2021 EUA Annual Conference featured sessions of various formats, including interactive audience participation, encouraging a rich exchange of experiences and good practices. Alongside the sessions on the conference theme, the event also provided opportunities for networking and for learning more about diverse EUA projects and activities.
