Register for the IHES conference in Brussels

On 15 June 2023, the final conference of the IHES project will take place in the Catalan delegation in Brussels.

A wide range of experts will discuss how to further advance the links between higher education, civil society and regional governments through innovative collaborations and projects. ACA and the Lifelong Learning Platform will present the extensive mapping of activities intentionally seeking to provide impactful benefits to the wider community (see more here) in a discussion with representative from HEIs and civil society. Such activities should also increase the involvement of the wider community (at home or abroad). They may bring the global to the local, or vice versa, as both are equally valuable. And they occur in any areas in which a HEI is active: education, research and service to society. Next to the report, the Online Repository of IHES activities and the IHES network, will be introduced, highlighting inspirational examples of innovative activities. The participants will also have a chance to hear about the IHES Guidelines with specific suggested steps on implementing IHES activities in a higher education institutions, developed through the experience of IHES regional labs, which took place in Catalunya and Olomouc.
