About the Forum
Collaboration between higher education institutions is an important part of internationalisation. Institutions are successfully using collaborative models to increase both inbound and outbound student mobility, staff mobility, and international research capacity
The Higher Education Partnership Forum enables participants from across the globe to connect with partners and to be informed about models of collaboration.
In 2017 the forum takes place in Seville, Spain directly after the ICEF Higher Education Workshop and prior to the EAIE Conference.
The inaugural ICEF 2016 Higher Education Partnership Forum was a resounding success, bringing together educators from around the world interested in developing partnerships with foreign institutions. The forum featured one-to-one meetings as well as a half-day seminar programme that showcased innovative models and best practices in higher education (HE) partnerships. Specifically, these seminars discussed international dual degrees, due diligence as a framework for collaboration, pathways models, and much more.
In total, 151 participants from 101 organisations attended the Forum. This included representatives from 84 accredited higher education institutions in 18 countries.
Forum participants may also attend various seminars, expert panels, and presentations designed to inform and inspire participants with a showcase of models and best practice in HE partnerships. In addition, forum attendees benefit from numerous informal networking opportunities including lunch, coffee breaks, and an evening reception to develop the more social aspects of their business relationships.
