Aims and Topic
Due to the many current crises and their ramifications, higher education and science are facing great challenges: refugee students and scientists are arriving at universities, international mobility and cooperation in science are burdened by new uncertainties, and long-term demographic change has its implications. These concomitants of the „turn of the times“ form a context that calls for an intensification of international networking in higher education research and science studies. This is the aim of this conference jointly organised by LCSS and DZHW. Envisaged topics are for example: international perspectives on the governance of higher education and science, measuring of academic freedom, scientific careers in transition, diversity of regional research cultures in the global science system, and multiple competition in science and higher education.
