6th European University- Business Forum


The Forum will bring together 300 high-level representatives from; higher education institutions; large companies; SME's, relevant European organisations and associations; as well as national, regional and local authorities from Europe and beyond.

It will be a unique opportunity to share and discuss your experiences, compare examples of good practice, to network and to learn from each other.

Past Forums have demonstrated that better dialogue and closer cooperation between universities and business can make a substantial and positive contribution to Europe's efforts to make our education and training systems more effective and efficient, thereby supporting our economic and social development. The previous forums have been highly successful and led to very tangible results including the launch of the Knowledge Alliances under the new Erasmus+ programme and the creation of the HEInnovate self-assessment tool for entrepreneurial HEIs.

The Forum will start in the morning on the 5th of March and finish at 1pm on the 6th. The mornings of the 5th and 6th will feature plenary sessions, whilst the afternoon of the 5th will be organised into 4 parallel breakout sessions.

This year's Forum will address topics related to entrepreneurship and the entrepreneurial university; change and impact; people and innovation as well as taking a closer look at some of the main current trends in University-Business Cooperation.
