“The future of the university” - ACA conference in Vienna

30 November-2 December 2005

The next ACA conference is organised in cooperation with ACA’s Austrian member, the ÖAD. The conference will take place in Vienna, during the time when it will be full of Christmas magic in the Christkindlmarkt.   

“The future of the university” conference will explore the need for reform of universities in the context of the Lisbon Agenda, by focussing especially on issues of funding, governance, and internationalisation, as well as the external factors that influence the present and future of European universities. The event will feature high-level speakers from Europe, but also from other continents. Among them are Peter Scott, the President of ACA; Guy Haug, European Commission; Philip Altbach, Boston College; Georg Winckler, the President of EUA; and Sohail Inayatullah, Tamkang University.

The registrations for the conference are now open. Early-bird registration will give you a 50 euro discount on the conference fee. The deadline for early registrations is on 5 November.
