Renew your membership at EUNIS for the academic year 2020/21

Welcome to a new year of EUNIS membership!

As a not-for-profit organisation we consider it highly important that Higher Education Institutions take advantage of the opportunities to share ideas and good practices to help us operate efficiently.

With this in mind EUNIS will be organising special interest online events this year that are led by our Special Interests Groups and Task Force Leaders. As a EUNIS member you have a priority for attendance and, if possible, you can attend them free of charge. Read more on the upcoming EUNIS autumn online workshops here and watch the promo video of the EUNIS 2021 Congress planned in a hybrid mode. Stay tuned and we’ll keep you posted on the new initiatives!

We appreciate your continued commitment to encouraging exchange, cooperation and debate between those responsible for information systems in higher education or research institutes and look forward to keeping you posted on new developments in this field!

Read more on the benefits of EUNIS membership here and watch the video on EUNIS here. If your institution is not a EUNIS member yet, fix it now! See here on how to apply.

If your institution is/was a EUNIS member and you haven’t received the membership invoice for the current academic year, please send an email to treasurer@eunis.org or if you need to update your contact info, use the form here.

We are looking forward to joining our efforts and to make our best for the Higher Education IT community!

Call for candidates to the EUNIS Board of Directors 2020

We are actively seeking new candidatures to the EUNIS Board from the regular members of EUNIS as two current board members will not be running for re-election in 2020. If, as a regular member representative, you are interested in putting forward your candidature to act on the Board of Directors of EUNIS, we kindly ask you to send an email by close of business on 21st of May 2020 with a short biography, photo and outlining the motivation of your interest to:
Mr. John Murphy, EUNIS Executive Secretary: execsec@eunis.org
The Board of Directors of EUNIS commits itself to make all efforts to solicit candidatures of excellently qualified female candidates to run for vacant board positions, in line with the policy of an inclusive and diverse organisation.
The EUNIS 2020 General Assembly (GA) will be scheduled during the Virtual EUNIS Congress which will run from the 8th-12th June 2020. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak the Virtual EUNIS Congress will replace the “face to face” Congress originally planned for Helsinki on the same dates.

All official representatives of EUNIS Members are entitled to take part in the GA meeting. This forum is where the decisions related to the EUNIS’ structure and organisation are made and updates from the EUNIS Special Interest Groups and the Board are presented. The General Assembly has two other very important duties: the election of EUNIS members to the EUNIS Board; and approval of the EUNIS budget that will be presented by the Treasurer.

Those representatives of European Higher Education and Research institutions (regular members) that have paid their annual fee and that are in good order in relation to arrears are entitled to take part in the voting and elections to the Board with one vote per institution.

The award celebrates great design where AV is an integral component of enabling education to take place in a given space or campus. Both new build and re-fit are eligible. The award is open to higher education providers worldwide.
