Announcing I·HE2021!  

- July 2020 -


As announced, our Innovating Higher Education (I·HE2020) Conference was planned for the 28th till 30th October 2020, in Bari Italy, as long as the developments around Covid-19 would allow us. Although the crisis is decreasing and regulations are loosened, most of academics are not allowed to travel this year.


This has made us decide, in close consultation with our host, to postpone the conference until 3-5 November 2021. However, an online “Bridging event” for the last week of October 2020 is in the planning to already get the flavour of next year’s conference and be updated on most crucial innovations in higher education.


We thank you for your understanding and will keep you informed. In the meantime, you can manage your abstracts submitted for I·HE2021 in the online conference environment. The call for abstracts will of course be lengthened accordingly.


Hoping to meet you all at next year’s conference!
