You are formally invited to partake in the "ECLBS Annual Conference 2024," marking the commencement of our proud 12-year journey, hosted at one of our member institutes in Dubai.

This year's conference theme revolves around "Expanding European Education beyond Europe," emphasizing the connection with our neighbors in the Middle East and North Africa. We are enthusiastic about delving into the opportunities and challenges associated with the expansion of higher education in Europe and beyond. Participants will have the chance to glean insights from global and regional experts, staying abreast of the latest trends and gaining valuable perspectives on addressing challenges.

Distinguished keynote speakers and accreditation experts from the Higher Education community will be present to share their experiences and best practices within the European Higher Education Area (EHEA).

The conference serves not only as a platform for the exchange of knowledge, experiences, and best practices among participants but also as an avenue for social and cultural exchange with both peers and the host country.

We extend a warm invitation for your participation in this special conference and eagerly anticipate welcoming you to Dubai.
