The International Association of Universities (IAU) and Jaume Bofill Foundation is pleased to invite you to attend the International Meeting “From HEEFA towards SDG4: Building on achievements”. This event will take place on 8 and 9 October 2015 at the Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site in Barcelona, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The aim of the meeting is twofold. It both builds on the success of the IAU HEEFA (Higher Education for Higher Education for All) project, acting as its concluding event and it bridges the outcomes of HEEFA to Sustainable Development Goal 4 (Education) and the UNESCO Framework for Action that is linked to it.  It will provide an opportunity for the higher education community to discuss the place and role of higher education in the international agenda for education

Consequently, the International Conference convenes representatives of the IAU international HEEFA Reference Group, as well as university leaders and other higher education stakeholders.

Places are very limited, please apply as soon as possible. If you are interested in participating, please send your name and contact details, with an email from your University President to Amanda Sudic (a.sudic@iau-aiu.net). Candidates will be selected on a first come first served basis alongside the aim of achieving a representative geographical coverage.
