About Conference

For the 10th time, university leaders will convene at LUMEN, the key arena for discussing best practices in managing Polish higher education. For nearly a decade, we have carefully shaped the conference program to provide participants with the freshest perspectives on issues crucial to universities. The upcoming jubilee, the 10th LUMEN Conference, will be no exception.

The 10th edition of LUMEN promises two days filled with high-quality panel discussions and presentations. On this occasion, we will reflect on both the history of building the development of higher education and look into the future, discussing the digitization of higher education institutions and strategies for internationalizing universities.

We will commemorate the anniversary with special events. In honor of the 10-year milestone, we will recognize individuals who have made the most significant contributions to building the LUMEN community with special awards. The X LUMEN Conference, like its predecessors, will also be linked with the Gala for presenting awards from THE World University Rankings to the best universities in Poland. A captivating artistic program and numerous networking opportunities will complement the overall experience, making the X LUMEN Conference a unique and unforgettable event.

On behalf of the organizers—PCG Academia, the Foundation of Polish Rectors, and Times Higher Education—we invite you to register. Let’s meet at LUMEN and jointly celebrate 10 years of extraordinary meetings, knowledge exchange, inspiration, and experiences!
