Ed Brinksma, President of Erasmus University and a video address by Tine Delva, Deputy Head of Higher Education Unit of the European Commission. Then Amanda Crowfoot, Secretary General of the European Universities Association will give the plenary keynote.
The conference continues the next day, June 15th , with a morning plenary session on OuluBot as the enabler of human-centered urban development.
Following the plenary session, participants can join parallel sessions. The parallel sessions will include panel discussions on important themes: Contributing to Urban Resilience, Ensuring Social Inclusion, Fostering Innovative Mobility, and Creating a European Student Experience.
