Competence and expertise capital needed for societies to survive, develop and succeed are created by networks involving higher education institutions. In order to educate the future experts as key ‘building blocks’ of our societies, higher education institutions need to continuously develop their operations to match the requirements of the working life, industries and society. Therefore it is of great importance to foresight the future in order to be able to define the competencies needed in the future working life.

From these perspectives and expectations challenges arise for the curricula, teaching and learning methods, R&D&I activities and developing networked expertise. How should we develop students’ competencies and expertise in higher education, and how to define and measure the learning outcomes?

The conference has four tracks: Competence Development, Assessment of Learning Outcomes, Multicultural Expertise and Student-Centric R&D&I.
