By their very nature science and research have an international dimension. In all its variety knowledge thrives on global exchange. Against this background, higher education institutions today find themselves in a period of profound change.
In order to manage this change, science communication plays a significant role. In particular, science communication fosters the important dialogue between science and the public, enables society's participation in science and the general communication of knowledge. The EUPRIO ANNUAL CONFERENCE 2022 in Zurich will exactly address these important issues and topics.
The participants from all over Europe will experience instructive discussions and workshops with renowned speakers and personalities at this major event.
We are delighted to welcome our Keynote Speaker:
