The European Career Services Summit
9-10 October 2019

Career Services as innovation engines for tomorrows universities

A strategy and inspiration session for European Careers Service leaders.

The Career Services Summit is a not-for-profit training and development event for senior staff in University Careers Services. Organised initially as a Global Summit, with four annual events to date since 2016, this is the first summit we are organising which focusses specifically on Europe.

As with our Global Summits, this has the core aims of sharing topical issues, learning from others and building professional networks. A key feature of these events is that we establish an environment in which people can come to contribute as much as they come to learn.



The topic of this event will be “The Future of Work”. While already impacting our work, this agenda will undoubtedly influence a lot more change in areas such as innovation, digitalization, sustainability and internationalization. As Careers Services we need to be ready for these changes and developments in preparing our students for future employment.

This event will include inputs from invited experts from business, academia and Careers Services, but our main aim is to stimulate and encourage discussion, and the sharing of ideas and best practice. In so doing we intend to help each other to develop plans and strategies, and to form contacts, which can help us all to be successful. 

Our programme includes:

    • Hearing from European recruiters on challenges they experience when recruiting graduates, and how we, as career professionals, can assist.
    • Sharing case studies of how Careers Services in the Netherlands, UK and Belgium are supporting their students to be successful, leading to discussion and further sharing.
    • Discussion and expert input on how artificial intelligence and machine learning can assist in creating a bridge between education and employment.

The cost of this event will be $275 USD (equivalent to 240 Euros*).

Your $275 USD registration includes:
● Welcome dinner reception
● All meals and beverages
● Conference fees

Please note accommodation is not included. For information about hotels in the area and how to get to Leuven please check our Travel Information webpage.

To ensure an intimate setting that enables a valuable discussion and networking experience for you, attendance is capped at 50 participants.
