Record attendance for the Université de Lyon at EAIE 2019

From September 25, 2019 to September 27, 2019

Sixteen member and associate institutions of the Université de Lyon took part in the 2019 EAIE international exhibition, bringing together 6,200 higher education and research specialists from across Europe and around the world.

A record delegation of 35 participants from the Université de Lyon, its member and associate institutions, made the trip for the 2019 edition of the EAIE, an international exhibition organized at the Messukeskus Convention Centre in Helsinki.

This exhibition was an opportunity for the Université de Lyon to support and retain its international partners from the International Alliance (Brazil, Canada, China and Japan) to develop and/or strengthen joint training and research projects.

The Université de Lyon received excellent exposure at the exhibition and promoted the site's training offer, its special schemes (Students Welcome Desk, Beelys, Espace Ulys, PULSALYS, etc.), and developed new international partnerships based on scientific activities deployed through IDEXLYON.

It was also an opportunity for the Université de Lyon’s representatives to take part in lectures concerning the future prospects of international higher education, including the future Erasmus program, European universities, recruiting international students, etc.

The Université de Lyon was the winner of the first call for “European Universities” projects with its ARQUS consortium.
