QS Europe 2021 Virtual Conference and Exhibition

CEO of Science City Lyngby, Marianna Lubanski, joins panel discussion on developing higher education in Europe on Wednesday, July 7th 2021.

QS Europe 2021

QS Europe 2021 conference and exhibition will convene higher education leaders, industry experts, and policymakers to discuss “Leveling the Field: Bottom-up growth in building resilient European higher education” from 7-8 July 2021.

Higher education in Europe has a significant opportunity to further strengthen its position through a bottom-up approach and boosting those countries who are facing barriers in areas such as policy and access. QS Europe 2021 will explore the challenges and opportunities of the region.

The two-day event covers insightful keynotes, debates, panel discussions, and case studies, and is also an opportunity to connect with the international higher education community, showcase your organization and create new partnerships.

Leveling the Field: Bottom-up growth in building resilient European higher education

The future holds opportunities and challenges for engineers in Europe: digitalization, climate change and the need for sustainable innovation. But how can we ensure that today’s students and professionals are equipped for the ever changing needs of the European job market and our society.

Together with stakeholders from inside and outside the university, we will discuss how the EuroTeQ Engineering University can initiate co-creative processes that ensure the alignment between challenges and skills for a prosperous Europe.

Panel Discussion on Track 1: Rising together

European higher education is heralded as one of the oldest and most prestigious in the world and hosts one of the largest proportions of ranked institutions by continent in the World University Rankings. The number of ranked universities, however, only represents around a third of all European higher education institutions, highlighting a significant opportunity for bottom-up growth across the region. What can Europe teach itself in raising the profile of all providers? Can larger and better-known providers learn from institutions less than 50 years old? How can providers plan together to work on equal footing?
