The new EUNIS logo!

EUNIS was celebrating its 25th anniversary at the 2018 Annual Congress in Paris. That’s a proper time for making summaries and outlining plans for the future. To mark this special moment EUNIS decided to adopt a new logo. Its concept has been accepted at the EUNIS General Assembly in Paris, and we are happy to share it with you now!

It is based on the isotype inspired by the map of Europe resembling connections between universities and HE institutions which EUNIS aims to enhance.

We would like to take the opportunity to express our gratitude to SIGMA  Gestion Universitaria, a long-time EUNIS member from Spain, for its invaluable support in designing the logo.

EUNIS partnered with our corporate member Avixa to offer a webinar where a range of technology managers and AV professionals discussed expectations, best practices, advances, solutions, and more for end-user engagement and experience within higher education.

The webinar was timed to suit people in many different time zones and around 50 EUNIS members joined a worldwide audience of 135.
