The EUNIS 2016 Rectors’ Conference  is a follow-on from the previous successful conferences held in Paris (2003, 2006), Prague (2012) and Helsinki (2014). These conferences attracted many rectors and decision makers from various universities. The topic of this Conference is Smart European University and the programme is created to outline in which way Digital and Information Technologies (IT) may help European Universities in the ever changing and more challenging landscape. The Conference will provide certain innovative solutions to address some of the main challenges currently faced by European Universities. In particular, the following topics will be considered:

  • Decreasing population of young people in Europe
  • Competition of US and Asian Universities
