The Conference was held in the framework of the 7th UNICA-SGroup-Compostela Group joint annual meeting. Since 2009, three European Universities’ Networks, SGroup, UNICA, and Compostela Group organise annual one-day meetings designed to meet their member institutions' needs for latest and up-to-date information, good practices, and networking & cooperation opportunities. The Conference will be seventh in a series of annual joint meetings and will follow "International University-Enterprise Cooperation for Adult Education" (2009), "Successful Management of the Erasmus Mundus Joint Programmes" (2011), "Strategies for Successful Europe-China Collaboration in Research and Education" (2012), "Exploring academic collaboration between European and Sub-Saharan universities" (2013), "Integration and Promotion of Administrative Staff Training at Universities across Europe" (IMOTION Conference, 2014), and "Rethinking competence development for students' employability: practical solutions for Europe" (2016).

 

Following the Conference, the 12th EU Research Liaison Officers meeting, with a joint morning session with UNICA Vice-Rectors for Research, was held on 7 November (09:00-16:30) at Vrije Universiteit Brussel (U-Residence)
