Social event with keynote speakers at SRCE.
Looking to the future: Universities in the digital age.

In a less formal setting and a relaxed discussion with the keynote speakers, we will be discussing the direction of development for today's universities and higher education system in Europe and in the world, pertaining to the current and future role of information technology in education and science, as well as the needs of teachers, students, researchers ...

Has the role of the university changed? What will a modern university look like after about 5, 10 or 20 years? Are we open to such changes? Does technology bring improvements? If yes, in which places and in what ways? What happens or does not happen at Croatian universities? Can experiences from Norway, Lithuania or EDEN help Croatian universities?

Such are some of the issues that we will be discussing together over coffee or tea.
