Why host this conference in France and in Toulouse in 2024?

  • Help France to compete with the major international higher education fairs: EAIE is the equivalent of NAFSA in North America and APAIE in the Asia-Pacific region;
  • Add a European dimension to the challenges of French higher education policy: excellence, internationalisation and inclusion
  • Promote the course offering and excellence of the 280 French universities and schools that took part in the 2022 event in Barcelona (likely to be more in Toulouse).
  • Contribute to the development of relations between Africa and Europe, the theme of the 2024 event, in conjunction with the Africa-France Summit held in Montpellier on 8 October 2021.
  • Promote French university excellence in general, and that of the Occitanie region and Toulouse in particular. 
  • Enhance the influence of the universities in the Occitanie region, France's 3rd largest university hub (260,000 students), particularly the major university hubs of Toulouse and Montpellier
  • Strengthen the appeal and influence of the region in terms of higher education and research: recruit talented staff, including visiting professors and researchers, particularly in the context of the experimental establishment that the University of Toulouse has become. 
  • Harness the economic benefits for Toulouse and the Occitanie region of one of the biggest conferences in Toulouse.
