EURASHE will organise its 29th Annual Conference in Budapest (Hungary) on 16-17 May 2019 together with the Hungarian Rectors’ Conference (MRK) with the support of the Ministry of Human Capacities and the Ministry for Innovation and Technology of Hungary.
We invite universities of applied sciences’ leaders, the entire community of professional higher education, European businesses and public institutions and European students’ representatives to attend the Annual Conference to share their experience and learn about trends, models and inspiring practices.
Theme and rational
Digitalisation, the race for innovation and the wider use of artificial intelligence are creating uncertainty and challenging our societies as never before. It is expected this will impact on all aspects of the organisation of society – both large communities and individuals, in urban and rural areas – as the buzz-word is smart specialisation of territories.
The challenge for the European leaders of Professional Higher Education is to gain an insight into how citizens will live and work tomorrow. Education plays a key role in addressing global challenges and responding to sustainable development goals. Generation X, Y, Z, millennials as well as older generations: what learning experience do they expect from Higher Education Institutions? What kind of skills will they need to lead successful lives and professional careers? How will Professional Higher Education help provide those skills? Are we definitely moving away from knowledge-oriented curricula and coherent qualifications into an age of transferable skills? How do we re-invent learning and teaching to remain relevant in a world of uncertainty?
While we don’t have all the answers, EURASHE’s 2019 Annual Conference will delve into these questions and attempt to provide insights into how future developments are changing the triangle of knowledge: higher education institutions, the world of work and the new students.
