How to make international student mobility more inclusive? How to reduce the carbon footprint of physical mobility and create greener options? How to develop good-quality, digitally-enhanced models, that complement existing formats?  

Through this event – Towards comprehensive mobility approaches: marrying the inclusion, sustainability and the digital agendas – we’ll start connecting the dots, together with speakers from the European Commission, internationalisation funding agencies (ACA members) and networks of higher education institutions. We will investigate the potential tensions between these objectives, put forward constructive ideas and explore paths for how to deliver on the vision of international student mobility that is more inclusive, sustainable and digitally enhanced – all at once.   

This exciting, hybrid event will feature an intimate audience of approx. 20 people on-site, alongside speakers and organisers, with many more remotely tuning in. Due to the limited capacity for our in-person audience, we cannot guarantee the possibility of on-site attendance for all those who express a preference for this mode. In case the interest of attending in-person will surpass available seats, we will select the participants wishing to attend in-person, to ensure a diversity of representation. We will confirm via a separate email the mode of attendance to all those who express a preference for on-site attendance, by 6 September 2021.

Registrations are open until Friday, 3 September 2021, EOB.
Please also note, if you choose to attend in person, we fully trust that you comply with the recommendations and regulations of the European Union, and that you will only attend if you have a recent negative Covid test, proof of a positive antigen test, or have been fully vaccinated.
