Thematic University-Business Forum: Developing Talents for innovation-based economies
2015/09/24 @ Vilnius and Kaunas
Past Forums have demonstrated that better dialogue and closer cooperation between universities and companies 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 in Vilnius and Kaunas will bring together around 200 high-level representatives from higher education, business as well as national, regional and local authorities from Europe and beyond. The language of the conference is English; interpretation to Lithuanian will be provided for the plenary sessions.
Please register online: https://www.ubforum-lithuania.
Registration includes attendance to all sessions, coffee breaks, two lunches, dinner, simultaneous interpretation and free shuttle bus service (Kaunas, dinner). There is no registration fee for the Forum. Participants are, however, expected to cover their own travel and accommodation costs.
