Following the regulations of its statutes, Columbus will make the 2019 version of the Assembly of its member universities in the framework of the International Conference of the IAU (International Association of Universities) 2019 that will take place at the Benemérita Autonomous University of Puebla (Mexico) between November 13 and 15, 2019.

During the Assembly, the conference: “The committed university: How to combine the expectations of social and economic impact of research with scientific excellence and training ? will be held. This event will be open exclusively to members of Columbus.

The International Conference of the IAU (International Association of Universities) 2019 “Transforming Higher Education for the Future” will take place from November 13 to 15.
