European University Information Systems – EUNIS
EUNIS brings together the people responsible for the management, development and policy of information technology in higher education in Europe. The aim of EUNIS is to contribute to the development of high quality information systems. This is to be achieved primarily through exchanges and cooperation between those responsible for information systems in higher education or in research institutes/organisations in Europe. In addition, establishing and strengthening relations with supervisory organisations responsible for information systems in higher education and research institutes in each country and at European level plays an important role in this context. Thus, various activities and events, a network of contacts and information and the organisation of the annual EUNIS conference are part of EUNIS' repertoire. RWTH Aachen University has been a member of EUNIS since 2018 and is also regularly successfully represented at the conferences by employees of the IT Center. more
