Public interest in the performance of higher education continues to increase along with dynamic expectations of its contribution to the knowledge economy, economic growth, societal development, and environmental protection.
Track 2: Innovation in Teaching and Learning and sustainable professional practice
The world is changing. Our society, environment, economy, and labour markets are transforming at a rapid pace, and this has been further accelerated by the impact of global pandemics and of changing climate and migration patterns.
Track 3: Sustaining Research Excellence
Sustaining competitive and effective research systems that foster deep connections between research, innovation, and education, and which address complex and dynamic societal challenges that extend beyond disciplines and international borders, require strategies that strengthen research excellence and deliver impact.
Track 4: Sustaining Resilient Quality Cultures in Higher Education
External quality standards and guidelines at international and national level provide important reference points to guide the orientation and development of quality assurance and quality management approaches

The only true constant in Higher Education is change. From Covid to Artificial Intelligence, from the rise of blended and online learning to the return to campus-based teaching, and so on, change is always with us

Internationalisation and transnational cooperation initiatives provide a variety of routes to enrich institutions’ education and research programmes.
