Regional E-Conference on Transforming Higher Education

Join us for the online Europe Conference on Transformation of Higher Education in Agriculture, which will take place on 12 December from 14.00 to 15.30 CET. The Conference is being organized in the context of the Collective Action (CA) facilitated by the Global Forum on Agricultural Research and Innovation (GFAR) on Transformative Learning of Agricultural Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) that was launched this year. The CA aims to harvest and document the ongoing efforts to support the transformation of higher education for improved agri-food system transformation. It promotes the model of higher education based on experiential learning, ethical leadership, participatory curricula development, and co-research/co-innovation, with multi-actor participation, particularly of farmers and their organizations.

Programme Highlights:

  • Interactive multi-actor discussions: Learn about the outcomes of a Working Group on Transforming Higher Education and engage in a discussion on improving the integration of functional capacities (soft skills), innovative partnerships and enabling policies.
  • Theory of change: Learn about how this CA will contribute to the transformation of higher education and how your university can engage.
  • Future project design: Get an exclusive glimpse into our plans for a full project design in 2024.
