Together with ACA (Academic Cooperation Association), Diku (Norwegian Agency for International Cooperation and Quality Enhancement in Higher Education) and Vluhr (Vlaamse Universiteiten en Hogescholen Raad), DAAD organises a conference on increasing synergies within and between higher education, research and innovation on 12 March 2020.
Increasing synergies within and between higher education, research and innovation is of particular relevance for higher education institutions, which deal with all three policy areas on a daily basis. On national, as well as European level, new “food for thought” is required on how to jointly approach and integrate these policy areas in the existing and forthcoming international funding programmes.
This event is to provide a platform for discussing concrete ways for raising not only complementarity, but also deepening interrelatedness between the policies and programmes on higher education, research and innovation at institutional, national and European level. The programme highlights national level examples where deeper integration is put into practice, as well as examples of higher education institutions and specific initiatives successfully and innovatively integrating the three dimensions of the knowledge triangle, in an international cooperation context.
For the DAAD, the head of unit "Research and Studies", Christian Schäfer, will present the DAAD's RISE programme and debate the question: How to bring research to students and students to research?
