British Council country teams give you a taste of what is happening in higher education in their countries - from AI to TNE and everything in between. Bianka Stege, Director Education and Society for the EU region, will introduce how British Council teams across the European continent work to support higher education and innovation through their in-depth country knowledge and sector expertise. Each table will represent a country in the EU region and will have a Country Director lead the conversation on hot topics in this country. They will be typically joined by sector representatives of the country who provide original insights.
