ERUA Summit 2023 – Call for abstracts. Why Universities? Reimagining higher education and research

Roskilde University, Denmark | 11-12 October 2023

The European Reform University Alliance (ERUA) invites you to submit your abstract.

The conference investigates the role of alternative and experimental forms of higher education and research in a time of challenges: expanded student populations, technological disruption, the emergence of a global market of higher education, and the growth of social inequality and anti-scientific sentiment. We ask: How do – and how should – these challenges reconfigure the role of the university in the world? Why do we need universities today?

The conference will address this question by focusing on three themes, 1) universities and internationalization, 2) challenges to teaching, and 3) responsible research.

We are inviting papers and panels that explore these themes as well as innovative examples of teaching and research practices. We welcome submissions in diverse formats and across disciplines that might encourage interactive formats which facilitate audience engagement. We welcome proposals from researchers, educators, students and practitioners

Abstracts (max. 250 words) should be uploaded here no later than May 15.

If you are interested in chairing a panel or participating in the selection of papers, please contact the chair of the relevant stream.


We look forward to hearing from you!
