Following the summer break, we are resuming the HEInnovate webinar series. The webinars will be held every two weeks on Thursdays. The upcoming webinar series will explore inspiring institutional practices showcased as case studies on the HEInnovate website, continue the discussions on digital transformation of higher education, and put select themes of the recent University-Business Forum in the spotlight by discussing new forms of university-business collaboration through social innovation as well as social inclusion through new mobilities of learning, research and innovation.
The new series gets underway by introducing two institutional examples from Latvia and Serbia. The university representatives will provide insights into their approaches to enhance digitalisation and entrepreneurship support and reflect on the key challenges ahead.
The webinar will take place on Thursday, the 8th October 2020 at 5pm CEST.
