!!The Internationalization of Higher Education Institutions
!Because of the coronavirus, the dates for the conference on the internationalization of higher education institutions has been changed.
\\
The new dates are __May 4-6 2022__ with the same schedule as the one planned for the May 2020 event.
\\ \\
During the past thirty years or so, the internationalization of higher education institutions has become a very significant issue on the agenda for policy-makers, academic leaders and researchers. Against this backdrop, it is timely to look closer at the conditions for internationalization and its effects. In so doing, the symposium will address questions such as the role of universities in a global world, international rankings, the mobility of ideas and students, costs and returns in internationalization as well as international branch campuses. An expert panel discussion will conclude the symposium, which is an Academia Europaea HERCulES event.
\\ \\
The conference is organized by the Academia Europaea [HERCulES|Acad_Main/Activities/HERCulES] group, [HERO – Higher Education as Research Object|https://www.edu.uu.se/forskning/utbildningssociologi/natverk/hero], and the [SIHE – The Swedish Centre for Studies of the Internationalisation of Higher Education|https://www.edu.uu.se/research/sociologyofeducation/sihe], with the financial support of [Åke Wiberg Foundation|http://ake-wiberg.se] and the [Department of Education, Uppsala University|https://www.edu.uu.se].
