About EMEA Alliance 2022

The EMEA Higher Education Users Group (HEUG) is excited to announce that we will be in person to Rediscover, Reconnect and Rejuvenate at EMEA Alliance 2022, 20-21 October, Nottingham, United Kingdom. The programme will cater to the diverse portfolio of campus IT systems. As always, the EMEA Alliance Conference programme looks at the needs of our students, our educational and administrative staff over the next five years and how can we best embrace technology to meet those needs. EMEA Alliance is a great opportunity to network with your colleagues from other institutions from around Europe, Middle East and Africa. At the same time, you may wish to take the opportunity to explore the beautiful city of Nottingham.

We look forward to seeing you in October!
