Next Generation University – Shaping the Future of Universities

RWTH Aachen | Anne Schreiter, Frank Piller, Ena Voûte, Martin R. Lichtenthaler, Elena Lichtenthaler

A highly interactive and engaging afternoon to network and co-create a roadmap to the “Next Generation University”.

European universities are a highly valuable asset, both for the economy (innovation and workforce) and for society as a whole (global challenges, such as the climate crisis). However, and to properly address the immense global challenges, universities need a much stronger strategic capacity and framework. Especially in Europe, where the most important resource is „bright minds“. The core question of the Next Generation University initiative is therefore: „How to make science more impactful?„.

During this highly interactive workshop, we want to explore real opportunities for change in universities. Together with selected members of the Next Generation University board, you will focus on three key areas: innovation & transfer, the rules of the academic game and the societal impact of universities.

The overall aim of the afternoon is: to get to know the working methods of the Next Generation University initiative, to network, and to leverage the collective intelligence of those present. 


This is an in-person event. If you would like to attend, please register by 05 NOVEMBER here. Please note that the number of participants is limited.

The three short questions in the registration form serve to prepare the content and – should it be necessary in terms of numbers – also to select the participants. You will receive feedback from us by November 6, 2023 latest.

The location is not wheelchair accessible.
