PL4SD and EUROSTUDENT are jointly organizing the conference “The Social Dimension in European Higher Education”. The conference takes place on February 25-27, 2015 at the Vienna University of Economics and Business in Austria.
The main aim of the conference is to create a forum for exchange of experiences and knowledge. PL4SD stands for Peer Learning for the Social Dimension and it is a three year European Commission funded project. The conference includes the following:
- Presentation of Eurostudent V results – Data on the social and economic situation of students in the EHEA
- Presentation of PL4SD results
- Recent research on the social dimension in HE
- Exchange of knowledge and experiences
The organizers have issued a call for contributions, including call for actions, sharing of policy as well as scientific papers. The organizers have specified in the call that: “contributions of empirical research dealing with the social dimension of HE in Europe are highly welcome. Analyses of national situations (with reference to a broader context) as well as international comparisons or views from a transnational perspective can be submitted. Following the approach of the conference, papers with attempts to embed empirical evidence in a broader context of policy and/or action are explicitly welcome.” Deadline for proposals – October 1st.
