The Annual Conference is the European University Association’s flagship event and brings together between 300-400 senior leadership representatives from higher education institutions across Europe. The 2024 event will be dedicated to the topic of “Universities in Europe: integrity in a time of change”.
Hosted by Swansea University in Wales, the event will investigate and showcase universities’ capacity to deal with change and to shape societal transformation while staying true to their core character, values, and missions, i.e. while maintaining their integrity. This theme will be addressed from a variety of perspectives, by looking at integrity in university leadership, the integrity of learning and teaching, research ethics and integrity, and fair and transparent academic assessment. Conference sessions on these topics will encourage an in-depth reflection on how universities, including their leadership and communities, can effectively balance integrity and change to the benefit of their institutions and society at large. A mix of plenary and parallel sessions will be used.
