Higher Education Conference

Building on Diversity: Transforming the future of Higher Education in Europe, supported by Oracle Corporation

Aims/Objectives
The main objective of the conference is to show how developments in the areas of education and skills in the UK are contributing to the Lisbon goal for the EU to become by 2010 the most competitive knowledge based economy in the world, capable of sustained economic growth, with more and better jobs and greater social cohesion. We will focus on the UK presidency theme of Personalised Learning and three higher education themes of Quality Assurance, Funding, Leadership and Independence, and Universities and the Economy. These themes are underpinned by the concept of diversity in that there is no single way to reach the overall goal. We will take the opportunity to demonstrate the choices that the UK has made and show how different systems are compatible.

Themes
Universities and the Economy
