EURASHE is organising its 23rd Annual Conference on 'HIGHER EDUCATION - MAKING THE KNOWLEDGE TRIANGLE WORK' on 9-10 May 2013 in Split (Croatia).

EURASHE as the voice of professional higher education in the Bologna Process endeavours to link EDUCATION, INNOVATION and EMPLOYABILITY in a Knowledge Triangle in which the role played by professionally-oriented programmes is of importance.


The Conference opens with a look at the above links of the

KNOWLEDGE TRIANGLE on a systemic level, through the eyes of the hosting country Croatia, while taking into account the European Commission's view on Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI), and we will be inspired by major political voices on the national and European levels. We will then go in details into each of the key features of the Knowledge Triangle.

The preliminary programme is also available, with information on the different tracks and the proposed work sessions. View the programme here.


Please note that EURASHE's 2013 General Assembly and an EURASHE Policy Workshop will be held on Wednesday 8 May, prior to the 23rd Annual Conference.




Moreover, an Extra Social Programme is being organised for participants on Saturday 11 May.  

Participants are invited to join us during a day trip to the island Hvar, participants leaving Saturday in the day will be proposed to join us for a city tour in the morning hours of Saturday.

In October 2012 EURASHE adopted its 2013 work programme with a strong emphasis shown on employability, highlighting our belief in the corner-stone importance of employability in current times.




This one-day closed event gathering selected experts in the field: researchers/students from Maastricht University (Netherlands) and from FH Joanneum University of Applied Sciences (Austria), researchers from Charles University in Prague (Czech Republic) and representatives from EUROCADRES and ASIIN e.V., allowed participants to compare their understanding of employability with other stakeholders and to suggest further actions to widen the HE community's participation in further exploring the field of employability.
