17-18 October, Bled, Slovenia

The Academic Cooperation Association (ACA) and the Centre of the Republic of Slovenia for Mobility and European Educational and Training Programmes (CMEPIUS) have the honour of inviting you to an international conference dedicated to the 'engaged university' and to linking the global with the local and vice versa.

The conference will be on the engagement of higher education institutions with their local and regional 'habitat'. This habitat consists of many actors: civil society at large, municipalities, companies, NGOs, and many more. The 'engaged university' is thus about the classical tasks of the university, i.e. teaching/learning and research. More so it will be about what some call the 'third mission' of higher education: outreach and service to and collaboration with non-academic actors.
