ENLIGHT Mid-Year Meeting in Groningen (6-9 June 2023)

The University of Groningen will host the next ENLIGHT Mid-Year Meeting, taking place from 7-9 June 2023. Together with the delegations of the ENLIGHT partner universities we will look back on what we have achieved so far and look ahead to the next period.

In doing so, we are very pleased to welcome our new ENLIGHT member: the University of Bern. The central theme during these three days is Transformation.

Keynote and panel discussion

Besides internal discussions and workshops the programme will start with a public opening including a keynote by Willem Jonker, President AINed, former CEO EIT Digital and a panel discussion. The panel will then build on the questions posed by Prof. Willem Jonker in his keynote. Focus of the discussion will be how universities and more specifically European University Alliances respond to the transformation processes that are going on in society.

The panel, moderated by Tina Kretschmer from the UG, brings together representatives from the higher education sector and beyond and will consist of:

  • Willem Jonker, President AINed;
  • Monika Froehler, CEO of the Ban-Ki-Moon Centre, ENLIGHT External Advisor;
  • David Donoghue, former Irish Ambassador to the UN, ENLIGHT External Advisor;
  • Daniela Trani, Founding Director YUFE EU University alliance for Maastricht University;
