ACA @ EAIE 2018 Geneva

Under the theme “Facing outward”, the 30th edition of the Annual Conference of the European Association for International Education (EAIE) will take place in Geneva between 11 and 14 September 2018, and is organised in partnership with one of ACA’s Swiss member organisations – swissuniversities – and the Université de Genève. The ACA Secretariat and ACA members will be attending this event, as they did in previous years. The event will give a unique occasion for the attendees to discover the Swiss higher education system in detail and to meet and exchange views with representatives of Swiss higher education institutions on-site, learning more on why and how Swiss HEIs face outward.

In total, the ACA members and the ACA Secretariat are participating in 22 sessions and poster presentations, and are hosting several receptions and networking events.
