Being very keen to see many of you again offline, we had embarked on an innovative approach to internationalisation in Covid-19 times. We had the ambition to hold the 22 April 2021 conference in a face-to-face format in Zürich. Nature though, planned otherwise. As we prioritise your safety, we are sorry to have to announce the re-postponement of our event to 4 November 2021, otherwise-said exactly 1 year later than the original date.
While we’re rescheduling the face-to-face event to next year, we’re not deferring the debate about the role of internationalisation in fostering innovation in higher education. Rather the opposite. Stay tuned for interesting thought pieces from some of our distinguished speakers and contributors, and join the online conversation on our social media channels.
Until then, mark the event’s date in your agendas!
