On June 20 und June 21, 2016 IDEALiStiC met IDEA League to talk about the future of universities. In a short meeting IDEALiStiC presented their ideas, e.g. online classes and implementing soft skills.

To promote IDEA League we came up with the idea of placing a road sign on each IDEA League university campus, which will point in the direction of the other IDEA League universities and include the distances to them.

Working on the future

At the IDEA League joint board meeting in Zurich 2015 the IDEALiStiC was asked to create a vision for IDEA League Universities 2030. To fulfil this task the IDEALiStiC conference in December 2015 in Aachen discussed the topic of future universities.
We are proud to present our thoughts in a paper containing five major aspects, we think are important in the future.
