EURASHE 23rd Annual Conference ‘Higher Education – Making the Knowledge Triangle Work’ PROGRAMME

EURASHE_knowledge_triangle_transpEURASHE’s 23rd Annual Conference is organised on 9-10 May 2013 in Split (Croatia).

EURASHE as the voice of professional higher education in the Bologna Process endeavours to link EDUCATION, INNOVATION and EMPLOYABILITY in a Knowledge Triangle in which professionally-oriented programmes play an important role.

The Conference opens with a look at the above links of the KNOWLEDGE TRIANGLE on a systemic level, through the eyes of the hosting country Croatia, while taking into account the European Commission’s view on Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI), and we will be inspired by major political voices on the national and European levels. We will then go in details into each of the key features of the Knowledge Triangle.

The three subsequent Conference tracks (with interactive workshops, roundtable sessions and panel discussions) will develop the three major themes, namely identifying professional higher education in the EHEA, creating knowledge in the institutions in close cooperation with stakeholders, and finally how to make this Knowledge Triangle work, for the benefit of institutions, students and graduates.


On Saturday 13 May 2013, EURASHE is arranging an Extra Social Programme for participants of the Annual Conference.
