EURASHE Annual Conference21-22 April 2016
EURASHE represents higher education institutions offering professionally oriented programmes, characterised by having strong links with the world of work. While in the past years EURASHE promoted different modes and the overall importance of cooperation between professional higher education institutions and the world of work, with the 26th Annual Conference they wish to bring attention to the benefits this cooperation brings to all the sides.
Entitled ‘Centres of cooperation striving for excellence: Professional higher education and the world of work’, the Annual Conference will develop through 3 main themes seen as the biggest strengths of the cooperation built between PHEIs and the world of work: employability, regional development and innovation. When talking about employability, it will address different indicators and discuss modes of cooperation and engagement that support graduates’ employability. Regional development and service to society proved to be one of the biggest strengths of our sector. It will showcase good practices where cooperation between institutions, the business sector and local and regional authorities made significant contribution to local/regional development. Finally, innovation is a key for development and when stakeholders work together, great things are achieved.
The 3 main themes will be built by key-note speakers, and further developed through working sessions focusing on management, educational aspects of cooperation and the role of different stakeholder groups. Additionally, a specific track during the 2-day event will give attention to the topics of high importance for Serbia and countries in the region.
You can join participants coming from institutional management, head of programmes, teaching staff, researchers, quality assurance managers and agencies, business, public agents and more. The conference full of knowledge, information and good practices, offering a high level of networking opportunities will for sure be an inspiring experience for each of the participants.
