01 December 2019 | 00:00 Code : 10162 Events

The IAU 2019 International Conference has just ended in Puebla, Mexico. Higher education leaders and experts from around the globe came together to discuss the necessary transformations of higher education for the future. Organized in cooperation with the Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla, the Conference drew around 250 participants from 60 countries.

Many insightful discussions took place, bringing new perspectives on the role of higher education today, the one we want for tomorrow and its relevance to societal development. Higher education is constantly shifting: IAU believes that the outcomes of the conference confirm the need to meet across borders to exchange on ways in which higher education can adapt to the changing society and more importantly, on how we wish to shape these transformations for the future.


The presentations are now being uploaded on the conference website.


IAU is pleased to announce the dates of next year’s event to be hosted by University College Dublin in Ireland, from 3 to 6 November 2020, on the theme “Relevance and Value of Higher Education to future Society”. This will be a General Conference where Members elect the IAU President and Administrative Board and adopt the next strategic plan. IAU will also be celebrating 70 years since its first General Conference which was held in Nice, France in 1950.

A call for paper/case studies will open in February 2020. Do not hesitate to contact us in case you are interested in being part of the programme or have suggestions for topics.
