Our Annual Conferences greatly contribute to the professional development of our members, and are therefore vitally important for European professional higher education (PHE). A EURASHE conference attracts a diversity of delegates – heads of institutions, higher education practitioners, policy-makers, academics and students – from the education community across Europe and beyond its borders. It is recognised as a communication platform for education experts and professionals, and is characterised by its innovating and stimulating approach. The following list of our conferences themes the wide scope and at the same time the targeted focus on issues that are relevant for PHE.
