Year on year, the World Academic Summit provides an unmissable opportunity for senior managers and expert thinkers to gather, reflect and redefine the key questions impacting higher education globally. Going further than a series of talks, this event will unite a top-tier delegation around the core theme of “how talent thrives” for three days of engaging and participatory discussion.
The sixth World Academic Summit in 2019, hosted in partnership with ETH Zurich, is firmly placed to be THE’s most ambitious and influential summit of all, having established a world-renowned reputation through our World University Rankings, THE magazine and the THE World Summit Series.
We will deliver a range of thought-provoking keynote sessions and panel debates from the world’s most innovative thinkers – across industry, policy, academia and higher education management – to answer the biggest questions facing universities and beyond on the topic of “how talent thrives”. This topic will explore key questions for higher education on issues of lifelong learning, industry partnerships, meeting the skills gap, research consortiums, and talent recruitment and management. We hope to reflect the diversity of experiences on these topics within our programme, by inviting senior leaders and emerging talent to tackle the opportunities and challenges being felt across higher education globally.
