Academic Workshops

As usual, we have compiled a smorgasboard of academic workshops and conferences to accompany the core dates of the WUN AGM. These meetings highlight the diverse array of academic research occuring throughout WUN and range from understanding cultures to global higher education to public health and data.

It is possible to book for both the Heritage workshop and the GHEAR workshop. The parallel running sessions on 1 May 2017 are listed in the day-to-day schedules (GHEAR program will be released soon).
