Anna Grönlund

My name is Anna Grönlund and I work as Head of Internationalisation and Higher Education Policy at the University of Jyväskylä in Finland. I serve as senior policy adviser to the university leadership in matters related to strategic foresight, planning, development and management, with a special focus on internationalisation, societal engagement and impact, as well as global responsibility and sustainability. For the past two years, I have served as Chair of the International Advisory Group of the Universities Finland Rectors’ Conference and as its representative in several ministerial working groups focusing on internationalisation of higher education. At the EAIE I have been part of the joint leadership since 2015, first as member and later Chair of the Awards and Talent Committee and since 2018 as member of the Conference Programme Committee. I believe my professional background and skills, especially in comprehensive strategic organisational planning, make me a strong candidate for the Board. Being part of the EAIE has been a vital element of my professional development journey and our community is a constant source of knowledge and inspiration for me. It would be an honour to serve our community as a Board member.
