Join us in Le Havre to address the topics of the 4th industrial revolution, or so-called industry 4.0/industrie du futur, but especially the response of higher education: What do such developments mean for qualifications? What will be the impact on the width and specialisation of graduates and professionals? Will personal development still play a role in education? What challenges and impulses will rise for European higher education and its professionally oriented segment? Are universities of applied sciences ready to respond to this change? How will they turn the challenges and expectations of industry, the world of work in general and society at large into advantages? How can higher education stay relevant and change its learning design in the light of new digital opportunities, artificial intelligence and quantum computing? What about more social occupations like nursing and caring, will they be overwhelmed as well? How can future leaders and workers be prepared for contexts in perpetual evolution?
