Leadership in times of crisis

The 2020 EUA Leadership Roundtable is an exclusive annual session that brings together executive heads of EUA member universities and national rectors’ conferences. This year it will be held online and will focus on leadership in times of crisis.

In recent months, universities around the globe have adapted their ways of operating, often very quickly, to sustain academic life. It has been a period of drastic, but also quick and efficient, responses to an unprecedented situation. With the current easing of lockdown measures in many countries, new challenges are arising as universities endeavour to restart those functions that cannot be delivered at home. Unanticipated opportunities to reform practices can be expected to emerge as well.

The 2020 EUA Leadership Roundtable will provide an opportunity to take stock of these experiences. Participants will discuss their responses to the lockdowns, their strategies for engaging staff and students and their plans for the next steps. To facilitate active participation, EUA will circulate key questions for discussion in advance.

As part of its efforts to help contain the spread of Covid-19, EUA replaced its 2020 Annual Conference with a series of webinars. This year’s Leadership Roundtable, which is usually organised in connection with the Conference, will take place via Zoom.

Participation is free of charge, but open only to executive heads of EUA member institutions. An invitation email to register for this event was sent to eligible participants. Eligible representatives who would like to register but have not received the invitation with the registration link are invited to send an email to events@eua.eu by 17 June 2020.
