The new EUNIS journal – EUNIS Journal of Higher Education IT (EJHEIT) is out. This issue contains papers from the 2014 Eunis congress and focuses on the accepted papers part of the “Supporting teaching and learning” track at the congress. Futher issues focusing on other tracks from the congress will be published shortly.
We are happy to announce the launch of ERAI – the EUNIS Research and Analysis Initiative.
The main goal of ERAI is to provide a platform where to find the information a University management needs to understand the uses and trends of IT for the European Higher Education system? Through ERAI, EUNIS will: provide case studies from specific countries, compare studies between two or several countries, share contributions coming from Members, write EUNIS’ articles, publish and promote surveys and analysis of the Task Forces, etc.
- ERAI will support university IT leaders to develop their business
- ERAI will support the European Union in understanding differences and similarities of the Higher Education IT issues in the different European countries.
- ERAI will offer Corporate Members the opportunity to establish a fruitful collaboration with the Universities.
- Most importantly, ERAI will give EUNIS the possibility to collect and manage content coming from Europe, making it the official “megaphone” of the all members.
We would like to remind you that registration for the next BencHEIT Task Force Workshop will close on November 16th.
Several IT benchmarking initiatives from different Countries will be discussed during the event.
If you haven’t had the chance to register yet, please take a look at the interesting program.
Participation in the event is open, free of charge, to all EUNIS Members. If you are not a EUNIS Member Institution, but interested in this topic, please contact Michele Mennielli (firstname.lastname@example.org) to learn more about the event. There are limited number of seats available, but it might be possible for you to attend.
We hope to see you all soon in Bologna!
But this is only one item on the seminar’s agenda: In an opening presentation, Adrian Veale of the European Commission will tackle the difficult question which language – or languages – Europe’s new global outreach strategy (“Europe in the world”) should use to attract the world’s young talents to our continent’s universities and colleges.
