The members of the academic community of the University of Bucharest are invited to take part to the 17th conference on Higher Education Reform, organized by the University of Glasgow, member of the CIVIS Alliance.
The deadline for proposals is Monday, 6 March 2023 and the conference will take place between 21 and 23 June 2023 at the University of Glasgow.
Entitled “Sustainable Development Goals: Their potential and relevance for higher education policy and reform”, the conference will try to answer to the following questions:
- How do Higher Education’s mission and work relate to the SDGs?
- How can Higher Education contribute to the trans-sectoral and transdisciplinary efforts urgently needed for the survival of the planet and its inhabitants, and for creating healthy and socially just living conditions for all people?
- What changes are needed in the ways the principal missions of Higher Education Institutions are presently defined, organized, and financed?
Like the preceding conferences, the 17th IHER Conference will focus on comparative analysis and discussions of policy and reform of Higher Education.
Three types of proposals are invited:
- Papers (single or multiple authorship);
- Panels (between three and five panellists);
- Poster presentations (particularly welcome from early career researchers).
Proposals must indicate the names, affiliations and email addresses of presenters (in case there are several presenters, the address of the corresponding presenter). Submissions will be peer-reviewed and the result communicated to proposers within four weeks of submission.
Proposals (up to 400 words for papers and poster presentations and up to 800 words for panels) should be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org and to email@example.com, by 6 March 2023.
For questions and suggestions, please contact the Chair of the Organizing Committee, Professor Michael Osborne, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
