UnILiON Annual Event 2020: “Future-proofing the universities of the future: learning from the Covid-19 pandemic and looking ahead”

UniLion Event 2020

UnILiON, the informal network of university liaison offices in Brussels in which BayFOR is an active member, organises its 3rd annual thematic event “Future-proofing the universities of the future: learning from the COVID-19 pandemic and looking ahead”, which will take place on 17 November 2020 from in Brussels. The event will be followed by a networking reception.

With university closures, the Covid-19 pandemic has introduced abrupt changes in teaching and learning and interrupted the majority of research activities. This health crisis provides a unique opportunity to explore new approaches to deliver high-quality education, excellent science and innovations that are more than ever needed to build a different model of society.

Senior representatives of UnILiON’s member universities will review emerging education challenges and address what can be done for universities in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic. The role that the UniLION universities play in the fight against the pandemic will be assessed as well. The programme also includes a panel discussion with high-level policy-makers.
For those who wish to participate physically, more information will be made available in the coming weeks. The event will also be broadcast online via livestream.
