Bournemouth University hosted its Global Festival of Learning – Europe conference in Berlin in April 2018. Taking place annually for the past three years, the Global Festivals, which take place in China, India and ASEAN territories, is an exciting way where the university can foster international public engagement, exchange and share knowledge and expertise whilst delivering impact across borders.

With the theme being Global Education 2050: Celebrating European Collaborations, representatives from German industry and academic partnership included ASET (the UK Work Based and Placement Learning Association), Bournemouth Borough Council, British Embassy – UK Science & Innovation Network, Cariba Internet Technology GmbH, Cultural Vistas Europe, Deutsches Studentenwerk (German National Association for Student Affairs -DSW), EBC Hochschule, International Association of Student Affairs and Services (IASAS), Lifelong Learning Platform, SRH Hochschule Heidelberg, Universidad San Jorge and Quadriga Media Berlin GmbH.

Through the organisation of the Festival, it became clear the extensive links of IASAS in this network. Thanks to connections by Achim Meyer auf der Heyde, Sven Engel of Deutches Studentenwerk was able to contribute to the programme. In addition, Mirela Mazalu of the European University College Association was able to connect the programme with Brikena Xhomaqi at the Lifelong Learning Platform, thereby allowing us to host Eszter Salamon, the Vice President of the LLP Organisation, who joined us from Budapest. All of these IASAS connections and contributions stimulated further discussion and exploration around the conference theme.

The event was considered to be a great success and the indirect impact that IASAS made on the event was evident. Whilst further collaborations have already been discussed between the various attendees, the importance and presence of IASAS as a leader within the international higher education sector was clear.
