EUNIS workshop on Higher Education IT benchmarking: Nov 13, Barcelona

Dear Colleagues,

We have the pleasure to invite you to the 2015 Workshop on Higher Education IT benchmarking, organised by the EUNIS BencHEIT Task Force! This year it will be on Friday the 13th of November, at Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona (http://www.upf.edu/en/)

The workshop will be an opportunity for networking, discussion and sharing experiences. BencHEIT is the first initiative that aims at creating a survey that can be meaningful and useful in the whole European higher education sector. In order to reach the important goal of building up a tool to allow the comparison of costs and strategies related to IT activities among different European countries, Bencheit needs your contribution and expertise.

Are you participating in any benchmarking project in your country or institution? Do you know any interesting initiative you would like to talk about during the event? We would appreciate to hear your thoughts and discuss how we can collaborate together to integrate different projects and work at a European level!

If you are interested in the initiative and need more information about it, or if you want to share ideas on topics you would like to discuss with us, please send an email to bm-pg@eunis.org.

The final agenda, registration and more information about the Workshop will be available after summer.

Looking forward to seeing you in Barcelona!

On behalf of the EUNIS BencHEIT Task Force, Yvonne Kivi

EUNIS 2016, Thessaloniki, Greece, 8-10 June: the website already launched

Dear Colleague,

As you may already know, Aristotle University has the honor of hosting the EUNIS Congress next year in Thessaloniki.

This is:

•         the first time the EUNIS Congress will be hosted in Greece,

•         the first time the EUNIS Congress will be hosted in the Balkan Peninsula,

•         the  Southernmost in Europe the Congress has ever been hosted.

It is a fact that the ever growing EUNIS community is expanding to a new region.

Let me introduce Aristotle University and the city of Thessaloniki. Aristotle University is the largest Greek university, widely recognized as a culture center of learning. Thessaloniki is the second largest city in Greece, famous for its lively streets, vibrant night life and cultural signature. As the former European City of Culture winner and the European capital of youth for 2014 we look forward to hosting next year’s event and showing Greece’s legendary hospitality.

The 22nd EUNIS Congress website is already launched and running.

I look forward to meeting all of you in Dundee and welcome you to cosmopolitan Thessaloniki on 8 June 2016 for the 22nd EUNIS Congress.

UCISA2015 Conference: 18-20 March, Edinburgh

Edinburgh will be the place to be for IT leaders in IT from HE for UCISA15. We have booked a range of stimulating and high quality speakers addressing many of the issues we are all facing, as well as giving an insight into in areas that may not be familiar, but will hopefully provide you with food for thought.

There will be plenty of time to network with your peers and valued partners, and the Programme will also include the popular Business and University Showcases which, this year, will be addressing the challenges we as a sector identified as being our top priorities. There will also be a formal Poster session with the opportunity to chat to colleagues about achievements and good practice in a variety of areas. Alongside this, we host the largest supplier exhibition for our sector giving you the opportunity to network with existing suppliers, as well as potential new ones.
