Anna Grönlund

I am Anna Grönlund, Head of Internationalisation and Higher Education Policy at the University of Jyväskylä, Finland. I serve as senior policy adviser to the university leadership on higher education policy and strategic foresight, with a special focus on internationalisation, societal engagement, impact and sustainability. Since 2017, I have also served as Chair of the international advisory group of the Universities Finland rectors’ conference and as their representative in several ministerial working groups on internationalisation.

At the EAIE, I have been part of the leadership since 2015: formerly as member and Chair of the Awards and Talent Committee and member of the Conference Programme Committee, and currently as EAIE Board member. I am now seeking a second term on the Board. It would be an honour to continue serving a community that is a constant source of inspiration and professional knowledge for me – especially during times of global crises.

As Board member, I want to strengthen the association’s role as the primary professional community and knowledge platform for our field. This requires critical strategic decision-making to develop our sustainability and agility in a fast-changing global operational environment, while still safeguarding our founding principle that we are a member-driven and collaborative community.
