This year Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE), Budapest has the privilege to organise the Annual Meeting of the Danube Rectors’ Conference (DRC). I would like to kindly invite you to take part at the conference, which will take place on September 25-27, 2008 in Budapest.

ELTE – founded in 1635 – is an elite, research oriented, comprehensive university with one of the largest number of students in Hungary. The university has eight faculties: Science, Informatics, Law and Political Sciences, Humanities, Social Sciences, Education and Psychology, Elementary and Nursery School Teacher Training and Special Education.

Over the last hundred years ELTE has had many world famous scientists: five Nobel Prize laureates and two Wolf-prize winners among its teachers and alumni. The current number of students enrolled yearly has reached 32,000; there is an academic staff of 1,600 highly-qualified teachers and researchers.
The topics to discuss during the Conference at plenary and sessions will be as follows:
-    University management and strategic planning (Track 1);
-    Life-long learning (Track 2);
-    Internationalisation (Track 3);
-    Knowledge and technology transfer (Track 4);
We would be grateful if you would volunteer to present some case studies and best practices in any of the tracks.
As the Danube Rectors’ Conference celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, we would also like to commemorate this important event. Therefore it would be highly appreciated if you could send us any photos, documents and/or memories related to the 25-year-long history of the network. We are also considering publishing a volume on this occasion.

Please register for the conference through our homepage, http://drc.elte.hu from June 27th, where further information (detailed programme, accommodation, travelling etc.) will be found.

Should any questions arise, please do not hesitate to contact us. I do hope to see you in September.

Yours sincerely, 
Prof. Ferenc Hudecz
Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest
