Panel Discussion

Unleashing the Power of European Universities

Date Thursday, Nov 23  Time   –   

The emergence of "umbrella universities" in Europe has led to a paradigm shift in the higher education landscape, with a focus on interconnecting all institutions. Is your institution a member of a European University Alliance as well? Automated real-time exchange of data and joint course displays are just some of the criteria that alliance members need to fulfil. This does not just affect leadership or an IT department’s activities, but impacts all students and education professionals too.

Our panel will discuss collaborative efforts that are being undertaken on a European level to establish common standards, coordinate activities, and foster cross-sector cooperation. Experts will share recommendations and best practices.

Key takeaways include understanding the paradigm shift and the role of European University Alliances, insight into interoperability challenges, such as data exchange, student privacy and integration of diverse systems.
