What kind of work we will welcome?

Understanding and navigating the complexities of educational and professional pathways is a key challenge for individuals, enterprises and higher education institutions. There are ancillary challenges of creating cross-community education and training ecosystems that support collaboration and exchange between a range of stakeholders, while protecting the needs of individuals and wider society. An underpinning imperative is to help foster the conditions for better quality of life and wellbeing for all citizens. Universities have a central role to play, both in terms of their wider social mission and in the design and delivery of lifelong learning.

In the 51th eucen Conference in Aveiro we wish to explore a common future that is cognisant of sustainability and wellbeing, integrating economic, educational, professional and societal contributions using the following overarching themes:

  1. Wellbeing in a Digital Age. Role of IT and digitalisation skills development as an essential part of citizens capacity building for further and higher education and labour market opportunities
  2. Sustainable Livelihoods. Different academic education and professional occupations profiles to identify effective practices and research findings that contribute to enhance how these two relevant factors can interact in order to promote quality of Life.
  3. Active Citizenship and Humanity Engagement. Learners’ life trajectory and their need of support when a new chapter opens in their lives. Namely, how can they deal with society and economic changes accommodating them in their expectations and aspirations in an active citizenship way.
