    The challenges emerging in most areas of society and life, but especially those brought by a digitalisation of production and services have got into the core attention of discussions on the future role and development of higher education. The new qualifications (Jobs 4.0), flexible patterns of work, but also requirements for learning and enhanced use of technologies in learning are new aspects to complement the existing expectations towards a more open and flexible higher education, its contribution to innovation and society development and responsiveness to various stakeholders’ expectations.

    Strengthening professionally oriented higher education (PHE) is an important part of such development. The sector has a specific mission of closer engagement with the world of work, respective regional communities and providing a pathway to relevant competencies for a diverse population of students with different backgrounds, age and learning needs and expectations. Professional higher education plays – and should play even more – an eminent role in various areas from professional and personal development of students and other learners within life-long learning, applied research activities to regional development and engagement with business partners, in particular SMEs. While focusing on these agendas PHE should also address another crucial role of higher education – education and development of people for active citizenship and democracy, their personal development and balancing it with professional aspects.

    The 28 EURASHE annual conference in Tallinn (Estonia) will be a two-day conference hosted by the Estonian Rectors’ Conference of Universities of Applied Sciences (RKRN) with the support of the Ministry of Education and Research. The first day of the conference will focus more on the HE educational policies and academic issues, the role of PHE within diversified higher education systems across Europe, specific mission and features of universities of applied sciences and their service to the society and how are these reflected in concrete academic provisions, curricular, teaching and learning arrangements, research and development activities and engagement of partners, in particular students and the world of work representatives., the sector’s attractiveness and perception of the world of work. The second day will focus on the relevant policies and expectations from and partnerships with the businesses and other partners from the world of work, various models and approaches to their effective engagement within mutually beneficial strategic partnerships and the specific arrangements for collaboration with SMEs and regional authorities. 

    The Annual Conference will be held prior to the Bologna process Ministerial conference in Paris and will feed into the further discussion on developments of European higher education after 2020. The conference key tracks are envisaged as guiding lines for potential contributions on innovative and inspiring approaches throughout the conference. The mission, role and concept of universities of applied sciences, impact and accountability, promotion within society
    – Strategic partnerships with the world of work and other stakeholders, partners’ expectations and approaches to their effective engagement
    – Innovative teaching and learning within PHE; addressing the new digital challenges, work based learning, recognition, relevant staff qualifications and development and engagement of stakeholders
    – Role of universities of applied sciences in applied R&I, collaboration and enhanced capacity for research and innovation through partnerships and students’ engagement in research
    – Contribution to regional development in partnership with the world of work (SMEs), regional authorities and other stakeholders, the unique role and potential of universities of applied sciences

    Introduction

    EURASHE is the European Association of Institutions in Higher Education that offer professionally orientated programmes and are engaged in applied research within the Bologna cycles. EURASHE represents universities of applied sciences and university colleges, national and sectorial associations of higher education institutions, and other individual institutions, such as universities. EURASHE will organise together with the the Estonian Rectors’ Conference of Universities of Applied Sciences (RCUAS) and with the support of the Ministry of Education and Research the 28th EURASHE Annual Conference in Tallinn (Estonia) on 19-20 April 2018.

    The conference will address the topics of the role of professional higher education (PHE), its potential to contribute to further social and economic development, to reflection of challenges brought by social and technological developments through strategic partnerships with businesses, other institutions, regional stakeholders and to become a key connecting point within the society as regards learning, development and innovation.
    You can find the full conference rationale here.

    The conference key tracks are envisaged as guiding lines for potential contributions on innovative and inspiring approaches throughout the conference:
    The mission, role and concept of universities of applied sciences, impact and accountability, promotion within society
    – Strategic partnerships with the world of work and other stakeholders, partners’ expectations and approaches to their effective engagement
    – Innovative teaching and learning within PHE; addressing the new digital challenges, work based learning, recognition, relevant staff qualifications and development and engagement of stakeholders
    – Role of universities of applied sciences in applied R&I, collaboration and enhanced capacity for research and innovation through partnerships and students’ engagement in research
    – Contribution to regional development in partnership with the world of work (SMEs), regional authorities and other stakeholders, the unique role and potential of universities of applied sciences

    Participants
    EURASHE expects the 28th Annual Conference to attract expert participants from both European professional higher education institutions, but also from relevant European stakeholders. This year’s Annual Conference is also especially aimed to attract representatives of the European businesses and the world of work. To serve this purpose, we have reserved the second day to address this cooperation. EURASHE invites universities of applied sciences’ leaders, the entire community of professional higher education, European businesses and public institutions and European students’ representatives to join the Annual Conference to share their experience and learn about trends, models and inspiring practices.

    Call for contributions
    We invite contributions from practitioners from higher education institutions and relevant stakeholders from the field, including companies, students, national authorities, quality assurance agencies, etc. EURASHE’s annual conference is an excellent opportunity to present current practice or research and test new ideas, elicit feedback from colleagues and stakeholders, and engage with all participants. All contributions are expected to seek to stimulate a discussion with the participants, thus enhancing peer-learning.
    The deadline to submit a contribution is Monday 15 January 2018, 12.00 pm (noon) CET Brussels-time. All submissions received after this time will not be considered. EURASHE’s annual conference is policy makers and practitioners’ conference, contributions that are not based on scientific papers are preferred.

    EURASHE welcomes two types of contributions:
    1. Breakout sessions: Each interactive parallel breakout session would be attended by about 30 participants and will last 90-75 minutes. The breakout sessions should be organised in an interactive way as workshops to encourage discussions between the participants. The structure can e.g. include an overview, followed by group discussions. The organising committee expects to accept about 8 proposals for this year’s conference.
    2. Good practice examples: 2-3 brief examples of good practice will be presented together within blocks parallel to breakout sessions. The Programme committee expects to accept about 12 proposals.

    Benefits
    Presenting at EURASHE’s annual conference allows to reach a wide audience of European experts.
    In addition, selected contributions will be offered:
    1. Breakout sessions: one full fee-waiver/session
    2. Good practice examples: a reduction of a participation fee by 150 € for one person.
    Only one fee-waiver/reduced fee will be provided per contribution. Additional compensations cannot be
    offered.
