International Conference

Our annual international conference brings together people applying lean in universities (in everything that they do), to learn and improve. Our annual event is held around the end of October, cycling between our three continental divisions.

Join us next in person at: University of California San Diego 2023 "On the Edge..."

Future Conferences

Interested in hosting a future conference? 

The annual international conference is proposed by each continental division and awarded by the Steering Group to a conference host that best meets the aims of the Lean HE

In exchange, the steering group provides guidance based on feedback from previous events and their shared expertise, to help support a conference programme that is increasingly relevant to the needs of lean practitioners in HE today, and offers the most value we can. 

Please let the chair of your local continental division committee know if you are interested in hosting a Lean HE conference in the future.
