AIRinVET featured at the EURASHE 33rd Annual Conference

Back to overview

This highly awaited appointment for the Higher Education sector is back for its 33rd edition, featuring a session on the AIRinVET project. 

The European Association of Institutions in Higher Education (EURASHE) was founded in 1990 as an international association promoting and emphasizing professional higher education. Its members are national associations, colleges, polytechnics, and applied sciences universities scattered across 30 countries in Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East, overall representing more than 550 institutions.  

Each year, the EURASHE Annual Conference explores a new issue relevant to professional higher education, related to its work priorities and thematic areas. A EURASHE conference attracts between 140-160 diverse delegates – heads of institutions, higher education practitioners, policymakers, academics and students – from the education community across Europe and beyond its borders. It is recognized as a communication platform for education experts and professionals and characterized by its innovative and refreshing approach.  

From 22-23 May 2024, the 33rd edition of the Annual Conference, titled “Stronger Together: Fostering Transnational Cooperation in Applied Universities”, is being hosted by the St. Pölten University of Applied Sciences. This edition explores transnational cooperation among applied sciences universities, aiming to generate discussions and new collaborations between institutions located in Europe and beyond.  

In addition, short parallel sessions explore the topics of applied research, quality assurance, lifelong learning, and local and regional impact. The AIRinVET project will be featured during one of these sessions. 

The EURASHE team is currently accepting contributions to the Conference, both for plenary and breakout sessions, on the themes of transnational cooperation, applied research, quality assurance, skills, and regional impact. Contributions are accepted until 22 December 2023.
