Expert Meeting in Education Networking 2012

18 October 2012

Experts Meeting in Education Networking is an annual event organised by European Schoolnet.

A key part of European Schoolnet’s mission is to work with its 30 supporting Ministries of Education in order to assist them with developing and taking forward reform processes in compulsory and upper secondary education.

EMINENT 2012 will take place in Genoa on 14 and 15 November 2012.


The idea is to explore how current trends in education and potential scenarios for the future classroom are likely to impact on the educational reform process. This year’s conference will particularly reference and draw on:


  • The findings of the ‘Survey of Schools: ICT and Education’, a major benchmarking study of the use of ICT in schools in 31 countries funded by the European Commission, and the first Europe-wide survey of schools’ ICT for six years, following Europe 2020 and EU2005 surveys.
  • Emerging results from the €9.45 million iTEC project that is developing future classroom scenarios and evaluating these in >1,000 classrooms in 15 countries, the largest pan-European validation yet undertaken.


Please register until October, 19th.

IMHE General Conference 2012. Attaining and Sustaining Mass Higher Education

27 July 2012

The goal of the Conference will be to identify longer-term trends and will include analyses of national and institutional policies, case studies and the latest research from the OECD and elsewhere.

The 2012 Conference will focus on Attaining and Sustaining Mass Higher Education. Around the world, mass higher education is either an aspiration or a reality. Yet this has thrown up many new issues and challenges for countries, including how to manage access, quality and accountability, funding and financing, institutional diversity, internationalisation, technology and the academic workforce.

The goal of the Conference is to identify longer-term trends and will include analyses of national and institutional policies, case studies and the latest research from the OECD and elsewhere. The Conference will bring together many different perspectives and look at the issues at the international, national, institutional, or sub-institutional level. Participants will be able to:

  • Listen to thought leaders and hear how the world is changing and what to do about it
  • Network, swap notes, make new connections, share experience and challenges with others and pick up fresh ideas
  • Ask an OECD expert to explain their work

Different choices are being made about a wide range of issues, such as selectivity, regulation and quality assurance, system diversity, public/private investment, and combinations of education and research.

In much of the developed world, sustaining public funding for the mass higher education system and replacing an ageing academic population are reaching a critical point. At the very same time, investments in research and education are booming in many rapidly growing economies, notably in Asia. However, even for these countries, as for much of the rest of the developing world, major questions loom about quality, accessibility and retaining academic capital.
