„The Future of Higher Education and Science – A Turn of the Times? LCSS+DZHW

Aims and Topic

Due to the many current crises and their ramifi­ca­tions, higher education and science are facing great challenges: refugee students and scien­tists are arriving at univer­sities, inter­na­tional mobility and coope­ration in science are burdened by new uncer­tainties, and long-term demographic change has its impli­ca­tions. These conco­mi­tants of the „turn of the times“ form a context that calls for an inten­si­fi­cation of inter­na­tional networking in higher education research and science studies. This is the aim of this confe­rence jointly organised by LCSS and DZHW. Envisaged topics are for example: inter­na­tional perspec­tives on the gover­nance of higher education and science, measuring of academic freedom, scien­tific careers in transition, diversity of regional research cultures in the global science system, and multiple compe­tition in science and higher education.
