Arab-Euro Conference on Higher Education | Amman, Jordan (June 10th-12th, 2014)

Organised jointly by the Princess Sumaya University for Technology (PSUT), EUA, University of Barcelona and the Association of Arab Universities (AARU), the Arab-Euro Conference on Higher Education will bring together university representatives from Europe and the Arab world to discuss higher education development trends in both regions, particularly with regards to student and staff mobility and its relevance in intra-regional and bi-regional cooperation. Themes that will be covered include:

  • Internationalisation through regional cooperation and mobility programmes
  • The role of student and staff mobility in educating the citizens and employees of tomorrow
  • The development, management and strategic interest of joint degrees
  • The role of leadership in building institutional partnerships and incentivising student and staff mobility

Following up on the first AECHE conference held at the University of Barcelona (UB) in May 2013, this is one of a number of international dialogue activities that EUA facilitates in collaboration with its members.

EUA members, and in particular institutional leadership and heads of international offices, but also faculty actively involved in Arab-European collaboration, are invited to attend the event. Other interested organisations and bodies are also welcome to participate, subject to availability of places.

EUA also welcomes proposals for contributions from members, in particular university leadership, to the sessions described in the programme. Interested parties can submit a short abstract/outline, indicating their interest/proposal for the session concerned.

Both, proposals for presentations and expressions of interest to participate in the event, can be sent to gemma.fagan@eua.be. More information, including the preliminary program, is also available on the conference website.
