IES Executive Director Anthony Antoine gave a keynote opening speech at the fifth series of workshops of the EU-LEAD project in Ankara, held on 1-5 May at the Middle-East Technical University (METU). The sessions hosted over 60 European and Chinese university leaders and key staff members to discuss university governance structures and university leadership. LEAD, or in full ‘Governance and Academic Leadership of Chinese and European Universities in the context of Innovation and Internationalization’ is an Erasmus+ Capacity Building Project sponsored by the European Commission. The project is coordinated by the VUB and supported by UNICA (network of universities of the capitals of Europe) and aims to enhance the capacity of higher education institutions related to governance and academic leadership. The 6th and final series of workshops will take place in Brussels in September.
