Next to the production of “intellectual food”, ACA is committed to organising events as platforms for exchange thereof. ACA events comprise one-day seminars – the well-known ACA European Policy Seminars, the newly established ACA Advocacy events, half-day events co-organised together with members and taking place in Brussels, for the “Brussels crowd” or joint event with ACA members taking place in the country of the member who is co-organising the event.
While the advocacy events are on invitation only events, the other two types of seminars are open to a public dealing with internationalisation in higher education, such as rectors, vice-rectors, faculty and international relations staff, as well as policy-makers and practitioners from government departments, international institutions, non-governmental organisations and think tanks.
The ACA seminars, better known as the series of ACA European Policy Seminars (EPS) take place almost exclusively in Brussels and gather an audience of ca. 100 stakeholders. The flagship of the ACA European Policy Seminars is “What’s new in Brussels”, the first of such events every year. Usually held in late January or early February, “What’s new” is ACA’s initiative to keep higher education institutions and relevant stakeholders informed about recent developments in the European higher education landscape by providing an overview of the latest developments in European higher education policies and funding programmes.
Other seminars tackle specific topics related to the internationalisation of higher education, ranging from issues such as student services and funding international students to cooperation with other world regions and student mobility. With its European Policy Seminars, ACA strives to keep you up-to-date on the hottest topics and developments in higher education, inviting the audience to actively take part in the discussion.
