The objective of the conference identifies with her field of research, as the conference will focus on the many innovations that are taking place in higher education and will address these from three broad perspectives. First the conference will look at the different forms of innovations in the governance, management and internal organisation of higher education institutions. It will also look at innovations in the delivery of education and in the different types of innovations that higher education institutions are engaging in for the production of research.

At the EFMD conference, Catherine hopes to share some of her research findings with delegates.
