The fifth European University Association convention will be held from 18 to 21 March in Prague, Czech Republic.

One of the objectives of the convention is to influence the priorities set for the Bologna Process post-2010, and to ensure that the specific concerns of universities are properly taken into account in the conditions set for the further construction of the European Research Area (ERA).

To do this, university leaders present at the event will be asked to contribute to identifying 'ten theses' for the future of European higher education and research looking towards 2020.

This year's convention will also have a new format, where in addition to the main plenary sessions, priority issues will be addressed under four thematic clusters:
- the university as an inclusive and responsive institution;
- universities as research institutions;
- governing and managing complex institutions: new challenges in higher education - impact and institutional response;
- global outreach - Europe's interaction with the wider world.

Each cluster will comprise plenaries and working groups.For further information, please visit:
