Exclusive Impact Rankings Live Launch

22 April at 12.00 BST

Due to the continuing health concerns associated with the Covid-19 virus, THE and KTH Royal Institute of Technology have taken the difficult decision to postpone the THE Innovation & Impact Summit. Our primary concern remains the well-being of our delegates, speakers and staff and, as such, we believe postponing is the right thing to do. We will update the website with a new date as soon as we can, and really hope that you will be able to join us in Stockholm. If you have any questions or are an existing delegate who hasn’t heard from us, please contact us.




We will be launching our global Impact Rankings on 22 April 2020, alongside a virtual mini summit featuring a special programme of talks, analysis and exclusive presentations. Join us as we create a worldwide conversation of leaders, researchers and policy-makers around the most accurate picture ever created of university impact amidst this period of immense disruption.




The networking among participants deepened over the three days, offering plentiful opportunities for collaboration.

The summit was a great experience that was valuable not only in a professional context but also in a social capacity, and provided an opportunity to meet innovative sector leaders.

The THE Innovation & Impact Summit was quite outstanding and thought-provoking, it successfully gathered lots of expertise in the field which is good for building networks.
