Call for proposals for CHER 2020 Conference is open!


AMEUP - Croatia’s NA and CMEPIUS - Slovenia’s NA and the Consortium of Higher Education Researchers (CHER), will be co-organising a conference within the framework of Transnational Cooperation Activities (TCA):

Engaged Universities: (De)constructing the Theory, Practice and Culture of Engagement in Higher Education Rijeka (Croatia)

2-4 September 2020


The Conference will be supported by the University of Rijeka (Croatia) and NUI Galway (Ireland), with their home cities both being European Capitals of Culture 2020. With an increasing focus on multifaceted missions for higher education institutions, there is an international convergence of interest on issues about universities’ role in a wider society. Therefore, we would like to bring together interested researchers to join us in discussing and reflecting on how HEIs are coping with the (new) demands placed upon them, and how the various dimensions of change are intertwined. You can find more details on the conference webpage: and in the attached document. Participants are invited to submit a paper, panel proposals or posters of relevance for the conference theme by 31st March, 2020. We are able to cover costs for accommodation and congress fee, travel costs could be covered by the sending NA.
