Invitation

EDEN is pleased to announce its 29th Annual Conference, hosted by the Politehnica University of Timisoara on 21-24 June 2020.
Human and artificial intelligence for the society of the future
Inspiring digital education for the next STE(A)M student generation

In the end, all innovation is social innovation and technologies become real when they change social practices.

– Ilkka Tuomi, Bruges, EDEN 2019 Annual Conference keynote

“Education is back where it belongs – at the top of the European policy agenda” stated the European Commission. We intend that Europe will be considered a strong and allied partner to future generations and that the EU education system must make our societies future proof.

Education is often envisioned in terms of innovation, excellence and competitiveness. But learning is also about reaching personal perfection, using a holistic approach that supports personal and professional development, learner needs and self-realization.

Skills in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) represent an important part of basic literacy in today’s knowledge economy. With the inclusion of a critical component – the human being, STE(A)M Education integrates the Arts – humanities, languages, drama, music, visual arts, design and digital media.
A balanced relation between Artificial and Human intelligence can create trusted, personalized and inclusive digital learning eco-systems.

The Conference will benefit from the cultural and digital environment of the city of Timisoara, as it celebrates creativity and innovation as the 2021 European Capital of Culture. The Politehnica University of Timisoara will commemorate in 2020 its first century of academic excellence.
