RERA International Russian Higher Education Conference
The International Conference by the Russian Educational Research Association (RERA) is a global venue for academics, institutional leaders and policy professionals to gather together and share diverse perspectives on major challenges and goals facing universities and their stakeholders worldwide.
Held on an annual basis since 2010, the Conference has distinguished itself as a one-of-a-kind forum enabling deeper and more comprehensive insights about what makes modern university systems tick, which strategies are best feasible for universities to empower relevant and sustainable social contributions going forward, and how all of these processes and mechanisms – both individually and as a whole – relate to fundamental socioeconomic factors and development drivers within broader settings.
By hosting a multidisciplinary mix of plenary discussions, special sessions and expert workshops, the RERA Conference endows its distinguished keynote speakers and participants with abundant opportunities for networking and debate – by resorting to the latest evidence from both national-level and global contexts – on matters topping today’s agendas in higher education curriculum and instruction, research, strategy, governance and operation, funding, relationships within stakeholder networks, national and international policy, etc.
