HUMANE Autumn Seminar, Trinity College Dublin

November 9-10, 2017
As Europe’s universities have grown in scale over the past 30 years, the effective management of space has become a constant and complex challenge for university managers.  The demand for new and better space to accommodate innovative teaching, research and team-work, often with industry and business partners, is an acute challenge confronting us all.  This, combined with the need to re-think space and its management as a critical component of the student and staff experience, makes the challenge even more complex. The solutions can no longer be delivered by property departments alone; an integrated approach from different professional departments is the new normal.

Our Autumn seminar aims to deal with these knotty problems in a practical and innovative way. The programme brings together some fascinating case studies with contributions from a range of speakers from Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway, Denmark and the UK, as well as representatives from other sectors. With participants coming from as far away as Australia, our seminar offers an opportunity to share and listen to insights, successes and challenges in managing the contemporary university campus, from a multi-national perspective.

Professional staff working in estates and facilities, IT, benchmarking, organisational development and change management, and the student and staff experience would benefit from attending the seminar. It will be a great learning and networking experience for all of our members and their senior staff. 

The venue will be the historic campus of Trinity College Dublin. The host institution and HUMANE look forward to welcoming you to Dublin in the Autumn.
